It appeared to be a suicide-murder, Columbia Heights Police Chief Scott Nadeau said at the scene Saturday, according to the Star Tribune.
The couple was found in the parking lot of Asia Chow Mein restaurant, which is located at 4905 Central Av. NE, both the Press and the Tribune said.
It took place at about 10 a.m., and nearby police were the first to respond around 10:30 a.m., the Tribune said. Shots were reported by nearby construction workers, but nobody inside of the restaurant heard the shots.
The names of the couple have not yet been confirmed, though suspects are believed to be Jozef Franz Tomasovic, 66, owner of the car found at the scene, and his wife, Natalia Jurjevna Tomasovic, 55, both sources said.
