A 19-year-old and a 20-year-old were found dead inside a home on Fenwick Street in Hartford Monday night. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner told NBC Connecticut their deaths have been ruled a murder-suicide.

Police responded to 45 Fenwick St. around 6 p.m. and found Deandre Faison, a 19-year-old resident of the home, and 20-year-old Alicia Underwood, of Hartford, inside the multi-family home. They both had apparent gunshot wounds and were both pronounced dead at the scene.

Faison died as the result of a gunshot wound to the head, which was ruled a suicide, according to the medical examiner's office. Underwood died from a gunshot would to the head also. Her manner of death has been ruled a homicide, the medical examiner's office said.

Police said someone called 911 around 6 p.m. Monday and reported that someone was shot on the first floor of the home.

When officers arrived, they found two people had been shot and a horrific crime scene.

Police said they did not find a weapon and do not have any suspects.

They said this was "clearly targeted" and spent around 12 hours processing the scene and documenting evidence.

“We believe it’s clearly targeted. It’s too early to tell exactly what happened at this point. We can’t rule anything out,” Lt. Aaron Boisvert, of Hartford Police, said.

Police later said Faison and Underwood were in a dating relationship.

The deaths mark the city's 34th and 35th homicides of the year.

There is no danger to the public at this time, according to police.

More information will be available after the evidence is processed and the office of the chief medical examiner determined the cause and manner of death.

Anyone with any information regarding the case is asked to call the HPD Tip Line at 860-722-TIPS (8477).
