Authorities also found a suspicious package at the scene believed to have been left by Miao. A sheriff’s bomb squad arrived to investigate the package, then removed it. Paul was the mother of two children – a boy and a girl younger than 10 – who were not harmed during the shooting, Ferguson said. Both are now in the care of relatives. David Ling, 56, who moved into a house behind the apartment just two days ago, said he heard two separate bursts of gunfire. “It sounded to me like many M-80s (fireworks) strung together,” he said. [email protected] BURBANK – A man and a woman were found shot to death early Friday in what police said was an apparent murder-suicide. Roxanne Paul and Garret Miao, both 28, were found inside an apartment in the 1700 block of West Alameda Avenue about 3 a.m. after police received calls of numerous gunshots in the area, authorities said. The preliminary investigation indicated that Miao, who lives in Reseda and apparently had some sort of relationship with the woman, forced his way into Paul’s residence and killed her, then took his own life, Sgt. Matthew Ferguson said. “We are led to believe the shooting is a murder-suicide,” he said. (818) 546-3304160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
