SIMI VALLEY, Calif. (AP) — A woman, man and a dog were found dead in a Southern California home during an investigation that led to a neighborhood evacuation due to a bomb threat.
Simi Valley police Cmdr. Steve Shorts tells the Ventura County Star a resident entered his home Thursday evening and found the woman unresponsive and possibly suffering a gunshot wound.
Shorts tells KTLA-TV it was a graphic, bloody scene and the woman was pronounced dead.
Shorts says personnel then noticed there was script on a wall indicating there was a bomb inside the residence.
Nearly 50 nearby homes were evacuated.
The Star reports the Ventura County sheriff's bomb squad arrived and found no bomb, but authorities said another man and dog were found dead inside.
