Two Found Dead in Kanawha County


Police in Clendenin are investigating what they’re calling a murder-suicide. We're told a neighbor called the shooting in after apparently hearing the shots.

The shooting happened at a house just off of Spencer Road in a development called Crumwell Estates. Dispatchers say a man shot his wife before turning the gun on himself.

It happened just after 9:30 Monday night. We’re told at the time of the shooting, the couple’s children were in the home.

According to our crew at the scene, it was quite emotional outside the home, where family members were gathered—and concerned about the well-being of those children.

Neighbors tell us it was a young couple—and they were going through a divorce. It's not clear if the couple had a history of domestic violence. Their names have not yet been released.
