Baltimore County police have identified the married couple found dead in their Dundalk home Thursday with “what appeared to be” gunshot wounds to their upper bodies.
Police said homicide detectives are no longer pursuing a suspect given the “nature of the injuries,” the department said. They did not comment further.
Officers found the bodies of Susan LeBrun, 66, and Dennis Lebrun Sr., 70, shortly after 7 a.m., having responded to a call for a person in cardiac arrest, the department said.
They were discovered in their home in the 3100 block of Baybriar Road with what appeared to be gunshot wounds to the upper body, authorities said.
Police had been investigating earlier Thursday “whether there was foul play” before issuing a different statement Thursday night.
A department spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
While homicide detectives continue to investigate the circumstances leading up to the couple’s deaths, the department said around 9:30 p.m. that investigators “are not seeking any suspects at this time due to the nature of the injuries the couple sustained.”
Police said investigators expect to learn more about the deaths after the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner issues findings from the autopsies.
Officer DJ Moore, county police spokeswoman, said the department never took any suspects into custody in connection to the couple’s deaths.
Earlier in the day, around 2:30 p.m., police were posted outside the home and guarded at least one entrance to the neighborhood on Sollers Point Road.
Officers helped wheel a gurney into the home. Nearby, a group of children watched.
