BEVERLY HILLS (CBS) — A man and woman were found fatally shot at the Beverly Hilton hotel in what homicide investigators believe was an apparent murder-suicide.

Officers responded to the landmark hotel in the 9800 block of Wilshire Boulevard at 10:50 p.m. Friday following a report of gunshots, police said in a department statement.

Upon arrival, police say they found the bodies of a man, believed to be in his 70s, and a woman, believed to be about 56 years old. Their identities have not been released.

Paramedics were seen leaving the scene without a patient.

A motive for the shooting was not immediately known.

In a statement released Saturday afternoon, Beverly Hills police said, “although it is suspected to have been a murder-suicide, police are not currently ruling out any other possibilities.”

Officials said they would release the names of the victims Sunday.

Reporting for CBS2 and KCAL9, Greg Mills said the couple was married and longtime residents of the hotel.
