(KMOV.com) -- Police are investigating an apparent murder-suicide after a married couple and their young child were found shot to death inside a home in south St. Louis.

Officers were called to the 3400 block of Tennessee around 10:45 a.m. Saturday. The building's landlord had discovered a man, woman and a 3-year-old child dead from gunshot wounds.

Investigators said the 28-year-old female victim and child had been shot multiple times, while the adult male apparently died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

A weapon was recovered at the scene.

Authorities said the man had been charged in May with hitting his wife with a tire iron.

An investigation is ongoing. The victims have not been identified, pending notification of family.
