East Hanover Township -- The Dauphin County Coroners Office will release more information Wednesday morning after a deadly shooting killed two people in East Hanover Township, Dauphin County.

Pennsylvania State Police spent Tuesday morning investigating after some body found the bodies of Luis
Angel Gerena-Morales, 21 and Savana Mercedes Silva, 22, both of
Grantville and an unharmed baby inside a rental property at the Cottage Inn along Allentown Boulevard.

Shortly before 8:00a.m., a resident entered the home and discovered the bodies, then alerted officials.

State Police say evidence suggests that it was a murder-suicide.  It appears the female shot the male before turning the weapon
on herself.

There was an infant child supposedly inside the residence at the time, said Trooper Robert Hicks, a spokesperson with the Pennsylvania State Police. He said the infant less than a year old was safely taken into custody.

One woman told CBS 21 News off camera that the two who were believed to have a close relationship recently had arguments.

Forensic teams combed the property, looking on the walls for the bullets, as well as a van parked nearby that police believe was owned by the male victim.
