Updated at 7:30 am from Assistant Chief Darren Pytel:
911 dispatch received a call around 7 pm with a male caller saying he saw a deceased male and a deceased female inside a residence on Glacier. He provided a first name and said both appeared to have been shot. He hung up.
Arriving patrol units surrounded the house and tried to make contact with anyone inside. They received no answer. The phone that called 911 pinged to the address on Glacier.
The Facebook page of the person that lived there and who owned the phone had pictures, including pictures of high power weapons, that caused great concern. He also very recently purchased another gun.
SWAT was activated. After hours of trying to make contact, we used a robot to breach the front door. The concern was that we could have a situation where a person may have wanted to do “suicide by cop.”
The robot was unable to search upstairs. Gas was introduced to the upstairs. SWAT then made entry and located a deceased male and a deceased female in separate upstairs bedrooms.
Investigations is just now starting to process the scene because we had to wait for the gas to clear, warrants to be received, and evidence personnel to arrive.
Updated at 3 am March 28 from Davis Police Release:
On March 26, 2015, at approximately 6:50 pm, the Davis Police Department received a 911 call from a male requesting that an ambulance and police respond to a residence on Glacier Dr. because a male and a female were in the house, had been shot, and both were deceased. Dispatchers attempted to gain further information from the caller, however, he refused to answer questions and abruptly disconnected the call.
Officers responded and surrounded the house because they believed there may have been an armed suspect still in the residence. After making numerous unsuccessful attempts to contact anyone in the house, the SWAT team responded in order to facilitate safe entry.
Entry was made several hours later and officers found a deceased male and a deceased female. Both died from gunshot wounds.
Davis Police Investigators took over the investigation and determined that the deceased are 27-year-old Whitney Engler and 23-year-old Joseph Hein. Both lived in Davis.
Although it is early in the investigation, preliminary evidence suggests this was a murder-suicide. Therefore, investigators do not believe there is anyone else involved, and are not actively seeking any suspects at this time.
