CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) - Two people have been found dead inside a Cedar Rapids home Tuesday.

Cedar Rapids police responded to 731 Memorial Dr. SE for a welfare check at 8:20 a.m. Tuesday.

Inside the home, officers found two people who had died of gunshot wounds. They only identify them as a man and a woman.

Police say they received 911 calls from the residence just before 4 a.m. but the phone call was disconnected before dispatchers could speak with the caller.

The Joint Communications Agency received another phone call from someone on a cell phone shortly after. That person gave the address of the Memorial Drive home and then hung up. 

When officers went to the home, there was no answer.

Officers believe this was a murder/suicide and therefore the public is not at risk. Names are not being released at this time.
