HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) — Huntsville Police are investigating an apparent murder-suicide at an apartment building in the 2000 block of Highridge Drive, just off Golf Road.

Police say they were called to the scene on a welfare check Monday evening. Officers discovered the bodies of Roxanne Bice and Dan Schimenti inside the apartment.  Investigators say both victims suffered gunshot wounds, and one of the victim’s wounds appeared to be self-inflicted.

Police have not said who shot whom.  One person was found on the first floor and the second person was found upstairs in the apartment.

Police spent several hours at the scene collecting evidence.  Neighbors did not report hearing any gunshots, but family members did report one of the victims missing on Monday, according to police.
