(UPDATE, 11:59 am) Two weapons were used in a shooting that appears to be a murder-suicide involving a man and woman on Warbler Way in Bozeman on Monday morning.

A high-powered rifle and a handgun were found at the scene, according to Lieutenant Steve Crawford of the Bozeman Police Department.

There was one round fired from each and it appears they were fired by the same person, Crawford said.

The shooting took place in a bedroom in a three-bedroom condo, Crawford said.

He added that at least one of the bodies will be taken to the State Crime Lab in Missoula.

Authorities have not yet released the identity of the two people, pending notification of relatives.

While neighbors say the man and woman were a couple, the police are not yet commenting on the specifics of their relationship at this time.

The call came in at 7:07 a.m. on Monday.

Two other people were in the residence on Warbler Way at the time; one of them called police to say that there was a disturbance then they heard a noise like a "pop" or a gunshot.
