IRVINE (CNS) - A man and a woman were found dead Tuesday at UC Irvine in a suspected murder-suicide.

UC Irvine police officers dispatched at approximately 3:52 p.m. to Social Science Plaza after receiving multiple 911 calls about subjects on the ground outside a multi-story building and discovered a man and woman dead, said Irvine Police Department Lt. Cathy Scherer.

"Detectives discovered evidence suggesting this incident is a murder- suicide," Scherer said. "Preliminary investigation determined the decedents may be related. We believe this to be an isolated incident and there is no known danger to the community."

The deceased man was a UC Irvine student and the deceased woman was a "blood relative" of his, Fox11 reported, citing information from UC Irvine.
