A husband and wife were found dead of gunshot wounds early Saturday at a home in Lake Ridge.

Police were called to the 11500 block of Bertram Street off Springwoods Drive at 3:33 a.m. to investigate a death, Prince William County police Officer Wade Dickinson said in a news release.

Officers arrived to find a man and woman inside, both with gunshot wounds. Both were pronounced dead at the scene. They were identified as Mariam Yusefi, 34, and Moneer Nasafi, 36. Dickinson said the two were married.

"At this time, the incident appears to involve the two parties and was isolated to the residence," Dickinson said. "There is no threat to the community."

A firearm was recovered at the scene. The investigation continues.
