Police ID Lawrenceville couple found dead in driveway in apparent murder-suicide

Two people are dead after an incident at a home on Woodington Circle in Lawrenceville.

Officials with the Gwinnett County Police Department say the bodies of the man and woman were discovered around 6:30 a.m. in the driveway of the home by the woman's teenage son.

At the time of the shooting, investigators say the boy's two younger siblings were at the home.

Police believe the shooting happened during a domestic incident, and say it appears to be a murder-suicide since a weapon was found at the scene. 

According to investigators, the man and woman were in a relationship, but they are not sure if they were both the parents of the children.

Police identified the couple as 52-year-old Christopher Farranto and 35-year-old Mirian Farranto.
