LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A man and a woman are dead after a double shooting in the 1800 block of Oregon Avenue, right off of Algonquin Parkway and Dixie Highway. 

Police responded to a welfare check around 4:45 Sunday in what neighbors say is a quiet neighborhood, and found the couple deceased from gunshot wounds. 

LMPD Spokesperson Dwight Mitchell says the shooting is being investigated by homicide detectives as a murder-suicide. 

Officials say the man and the woman were a couple, and their child was inside the home when the shooting occurred but was not harmed. 

LMPD says the child is safe and now with family.
