Neighbors heard gunshots around 2:00 p.m. and found the bodies of a man and woman outside a home in the 100 block of Runaway Lane.

The Sheriff's Department identified the victim as 74-year-old Mildred F. Baldwin, who lived at the residence where this occurred.

The suspect has been identified as Mildred's son-in-law, 53-year-old Marvin J. Bowen of Richmond.
