Homicide detectives have confirmed a murder-suicide shooting that left a husband and wife dead in a parking lot in Stevenson Ranch Sunday night.
Santa Clarita Valley deputies received a call at about 9 P.M. with reports of a shooting in front of the FedEx Office building on Pico Canyon Road near the Old Road.
Evidence at the scene confirmed the husband and wife left the FedEx Office together. The husband shot his wife and then turned the gun on himself. The two were pronounced dead at the scene. Officials recovered the firearm at the scene, and they were not seeking any suspects.
