NASHUA - A couple is dead after an apparent murder-suicide in Nashua.
Investigators said they responded near the "Little Florida" section of the city last night around 11:00 p.m. after someone reported a woman's body was found a few blocks away on the Baldwin Street Bridge.
The woman, who police are not identifying, is the victim of an apparent murder-suicide.
A man who lived with her at 1 Hutchinson Street is believed to be responsible for her death.
He isn't being identified either at this time, but he held police at a standoff early this morning before taking his own life with an apparent single gunshot-wound.
Police were still at the crime scene late Saturday night.
Lights and a television in the home's living room remained on, the front door still wide open. The yard, however, was blocked off with yellow caution tape.
According to Senior Asst. Attorney General Jeffrey Strelzin, the two were romantically involved in a relationship for 20-25 years, but were unmarried.
Strelzin said the two had been out with friends earlier in the evening, and that the man "pulled out a gun" while with them.
He then also reportedly threatened to hurt himself with the gun, and that's when friends called police.
The male subject was also a hunter, according to Strelzin, and had lots of guns in his home.
Police threw teargas through his windows in an attempt to get the man out of the home, but when they finally got inside - they found him dead. Police did not fire their weapons throughout the ordeal.
Some neighbors were evacuated from their homes as a precaution, others were told not to leave their homes.
An autopsy on both individuals is expected to be performed on Monday.
The investigation is ongoing.
