A horrific tale of a murder-suicide has unfolded in the Tampa Bay area. According to a report by the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, the unnamed couple were fighting in their Tampa home, a condo in the Stone Creek Point complex between 56th Street and Fletcher at 13374 Arbor Pointe Circle.

The report says that neighbors heard the couple arguing and shortly before 6:00 a.m., Thursday, February 25, 2010, gunshots were fired. Deputies were notified and upon arriving at the scene they found the man had died, the woman was clinging to life and had been transported to the University Community Hospital. She died later.

Reports say that two children, 10 and 14 year-old-girls were hiding in the bathroom during the argument and subsequent murder-suicide. Authorities stated that the two girls are the couple’s children. The children were not harmed and the identity of the victims has not been released.

The investigation is underway as detectives continue to speak to witnesses.
