Police discovered the two people inside a home on the 200 block of Tennessee Avenue NE after being called to check on the man and woman.
The man and woman were renovating the house and there were no signs of forced entry, NBC Washington reported.
The deaths appear to be an “isolated incident” according to Metropolitan Police First District Commander Jeff Brown. Police do not have any further details on what happened.
Earlier in the evening, a crime alert was sent out for a shooting on that block. Brown said in an email that the crime alert was “erroneous and based on misinformation.”
