On Sunday April 27, 2014, at approximately 5:05 P.M., Woodland Police Officers and medical personnel responded to the 200 block of Riverside Dr. for a report of a shooting that just occurred. Responding officers arrived on scene within minutes and located an adult female and an adult male suffering from apparent gunshot wounds inside the residence. Both subjects were pronounced dead a short time later by medical personnel. Four other people inside the residence at the time of the shooting were not harmed.

 Though the investigation is ongoing, preliminarily it is believed the deceased female and deceased male had been in a dating relationship and this was a domestic violence related murder-suicide. The names of the female and male decedents are not being released at this time. Anyone who may have information regarding this case is encouraged to call the Woodland Police Department at (530) 666-2411.
