(Lancaster) -- Authorities say a man and woman were found dead in a Lancaster County home in a murder-suicide.

Manheim Township police say officers were called to the Lancaster Township home shortly before 8:30 p.m. yesterday.

Officers identified the two as 55-year-old Reynol Maymi and 36-year-old Jacqueline Vera.

They say investigators had determined that the deaths were "a domestic-related homicide suicide."

In a statement, police say, "This was not a random act of violence, and there is no continued threat to the community."

The firearm was recovered and had been legally purchased.

The Lancaster County coroner's office said autopsies are planned tomorrow.
