A deadly double shooting Monday at a home on Lakeside Court in Loganville was ruled a murder-suicide, according to police.

Two people found dead at a Loganville home Monday morning were killed as a result of apparent murder-suicide, officials said.

Loganville police were called to Lakeside Court in the Lakeside at Loganville subdivision shortly after 10 a.m. to investigate a report of a person shot, according to Loganville police Chief Dick Lowry. At the scene, officers found 30-year-old Andanae Deshawn Gates and 31-year-old Clinton George Cunningham both dead from gunshot wounds, Lowry said.

According to Lowry, Cunningham shot and killed Gates, then turned the gun on himself as police arrived. Investigators were able to rule the killings murder-suicide through a combination of eyewitness accounts and evidence from the scene, the chief said.

Officials did not say what motivated the double shooting or disclose any further information about the circumstances around the incident. Lowry thanked the GBI and Gwinnett County Medical Examiner’s Office for their help with the investigation.
