Couple found shot in car

dead couple

GALLUP (KRQE) –   Federal and Tribal authorities are investigating the deaths of a man and a woman both found shot.

The FBI says the bodies were found Saturday morning inside a truck parked near Casamero Lake in Prewitt.

Both adults are said to have gunshot wounds and a gun was found inside the truck.

Witnesses told investigators the couple was seen arguing at a casino earlier that night.

Authorities are not ruling out a possible murder-suicide but say the investigation is still too early to determine that.
