SAN JOSE (CBS SF) — A man and a woman were found shot to death in an East San Jose home Thursday afternoon from an apparent murder-suicide, according to police.

The shooting was reported around 4:30 p.m. in the 1800 block of Bermuda Way, police said.

The two are believed to have been romantically involved, and the man shot the woman and then himself, police Sgt. Jason Dwyer said.

A third person was the house with the two when the shooting happened who called police after going upstairs and finding the two dead, Dwyer said.

Police have not yet identified the two killed, but said both were in their 20s.

The house is in a suburban neighborhood across the street from William C. Overfelt High School.

Even as Bermuda Way was blocked off Thursday afternoon while police investigated, softball games continued on the high school grounds and children walked through the neighborhood carrying Valentine’s Day balloons.
