North Port couple dead, police answer to shots fired at their home

A married couple was found dead at their North Port home, police on Saturday reported. Officers responded to a family disturbance and shots fired around 12:45 a.m. to the home on the 5000 block of Lady Slipper Avenue, spokesman Josh Taylor said. Police found a man and woman, he said, dead from apparent gunshots. Other family were at the home. No children were present when things turned deadly. No one in the home was identified or suspected of involvement in what appeared to be a murder-suicide. Names were withheld.

North Port investigators on Saturday pieced together timelines and possible causes for the violence, Taylor said, adding that the incident was isolated.
