JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office Homicide Unit has identified the woman killed in an apparent murder-suicide in the 13600 block of Danhurst Way Friday night.
Officers identified the murder victim as 20-year-old Lauren N. Allen. She lived at the home.
The incident involved Allen and a man in his 20s, according to Sgt. Jay Farhat of the JSO Homicide Unit. It is not yet clear if the two were a couple, but Farhat said they have known each other for quite a while.
Farhat said all indications are that the incident was a murder-suicide, but the Homicide Unit is still investigating to be sure.
"It's still very early on in the investigation but it does appear at this point in time, indications are that this is a murder-suicide," said Sgt. Jay Farhat of JSO. " ... We are going to continue the investigation to make sure it is in fact a murder-suicide."
Farhat said investigators found a handgun at the scene. Allen's mother found her daughter and the male.
