A spokesperson told CBS4 News, officers received a phone call just after 6:30 p.m. from a man that said there would be a murder suicide and hung up the phone.

Police went to the address at 1700 NW 80th Avenue, #103.

While there, the spokesperson said the officers saw a man come out of the apartment and look around.

After that, police said he went back inside and closed the door.

When officers tried to reach the man, they reported hearing gunshots.
