— A man and a woman apparently were shot to death at 12 N. Washington St. in Janesville sometime Saturday morning.

Police were called to the home just north of West Court Street in Janesville at 9:05 a.m. Saturday.


At 12:36 p.m., Janesville police released the following:


“Officers were called to 12 N. Washington (St.) for two adult victims suffering major trauma. The adult victims were a female in her 30s and a male in his 50s. No other persons living at the residence were injured.


“Both victims were pronounced deceased by emergency medical responders. The investigation is in its preliminary stages, and additional information will be released pending family notifications.”


Earlier an officer with the department told The Janesville Gazette that police had responded to a report of a shooting with two victims.


Janesville Fire Department ambulances were called to the scene, but emergency medical technicians were told they were not needed.


Rock Count Coroner Jenifer Keach was at the scene.
