Police have apprehended a suspect in a double homicide Friday night in Eastpointe.

Officers were called around 7:30 p.m. to a shooting in progress at a home on the 15000 block of Veronica, the police department said.

Upon police arrival, they found two people believed to be brother and sister — a man, 57, and a woman, 63 — had been found shot at the location.

"Both had been shot multiple times and both resided at the home," police said.

Their investigation led to the arrest of a 30-year-old man and his father, who were apprehended without incident outside of Bowling Green, Ohio.

The father was an accessory after the fact, police said, adding the suspect was attempting to flee.

Investigators say they have reason to believe that a domestic situation led to the incident.

No additional details were available on the victims or the circumstances of the incident.

FBI Violent Crime Task Force and Ohio State Police assisted in the incident.

"Our most sincere condolences go out to the victims and their families," police said.
