NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — New Haven police are investigating after an adult male and female were found dead inside a home Sunday.

Just before 11:30 a.m., New Haven police and fire crews responded to a Winthrop Avenue residence after a 911 caller reported finding two severely injured people inside the home. 

Officials said emergency providers pronounced an adult male and female deceased at the scene. Police identified them Tuesday as 50-year-old Alfreda Youmans and 42-year-old Jeffery Dotson, both of New Haven.

This is being investigated as a double homicide. Police said the two were fatally shot.

The bodies were removed from the home by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner on Sunday; however, officers were still at the crime scene on Monday.
