NEW HAVEN — Two people were reported dead in a New Haven home Sunday morning, but little information was immediately available.

Police were sent to Winthrop Avenue just before 11:30 a.m. Sunday after someone called 911 and reported there were “severely injured persons inside the home,” according to a police department press release.

“Responding emergency providers pronounced the adult male and adult female deceased at the scene,” Capt. Anthony Duff wrote in a release.

As of 1:30 p.m., detectives from major crimes and the identification bureau remained at the scene.

Police didn’t identify the individuals in the release.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the New Haven Police Department at 203-946-6304. Callers may remain anonymous.
