WESTMINSTER, Colo. – The man and woman who were found dead after an apparent murder-suicide in Westminster early Saturday morning were identified Wednesday afternoon by the Adams County Coroner.

Erika Bryant, 26 and Tino Valle, 28, were found dead after police responded to a disturbance at a home in the area of 85th Avenue and Lowell Boulevard on Dec. 2.

Police found Bryant dead with a gunshot wound and Valle was found dead from a suspected self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to Westminster Police investigator Kate Kazell.

Police are not sure who fired the shots, but believe one of them called police before shots rang out.

“The situation appears to be domestic violence related and we do not believe there is any danger to the public,” Kazell said over the weekend.
