The Arapahoe County coroner says that a man found shot to death in a Littleton home Thursday committed suicide, and a woman found fatally injured in the same home was
the victim of homicide.
Michael Fallon, 45, and Christa Sue Benton, 38, both died of gunshot wounds to their heads, according to a news release.
Littleton Cmdr. Trent Cooper said police are investigating what motivated the shooting. They are speaking with relatives, neighbors and family friends and processing forensic evidence.
Littleton Fire Rescue and police officers responded to a home in the 5500 block of South Grant Street at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday and found "an apparent gunshot victim," according to a Littleton media release.
Fallon was pronounced dead at the scene. Benton was taken to a Littleton hospital where she was later pronounced dead.
Police said there's "no reason to believe there are any other parties involved or any continuing danger to the public."
