At 3:34 p.m. Feb. 4, Federal Way police were called to the scene of a shooting at 32820 20th Ave. S.

Police entered a residence in the Cedar Creek manufactured home park and located two bodies, police spokesman Raymond Bunk said.

Medics pronounced both elderly individuals, one male and one female, deceased. The cause of death has not been released by police. Bunk is unable to say if detectives have recovered a gun or any other weapon.

The individuals were related, but it is unclear of their exact relationship at this point, Bunk said. Police are also not sure if both were residents of the park. They are investigating the crime as a homicide/suicide case, Bunk said.

He is unsure if the residence has a history of domestic violence calls, he said.
