CLEVELAND — Cleveland police are investigating after a man and a woman were found dead with gunshot wounds inside a home in the city's Lee-Miles neighborhood early Saturday morning; two children were found in the home.

Around 3:08 a.m., officers were called to the 4200 block of East 189th Street where they observed the front door of the home ajar upon arrival.

Officers found a 40-year-old man and a 29-year-old woman inside the home with apparent gunshot wounds to their heads, police said.

The man and woman were pronounced dead at the scene by EMS.

After finding the man and the woman, officers found a 5-year-old and 8-year-old child inside the home. Both children were found unharmed, according to police.
