    TIROTEO/ Una pareja de Miami-Dade está muerta tras una pelea al jueves por la noche que terminó en un tiroteo.

    La policía recibió una llamada sobre una "mujer en problemas" en una casa de la cuadra 19000 de la NW 57 Ave., según las autoridades.

    La policía indentificó a los muertos como Natasha Murph, de 35 años, y Clifford Murph, de 36.

    La policía encontró a Clifford Murph muerto en la casa tras la llamada a las 10 p.m. Natasha fue llevada a un hospital local donde falleció.

    "Esto es todavía una investigación abierta", afirmó el detective Bobby Wlliams, un portavoz de la policía de Miami-Dade. "No hemos determinado como se desarrolló esto. Creeemos que son las únicas personas implicadas".

    La temprana investigación "revela que el hombre y la mujer eran una pareja distanciada que protagonizó una disputa que escaló a un tiroteo", escribió en una nota de prensa el detective de Miami-Dade Roy Rutland.

    Natasha Murph era una policía que trabajaba con el Departamento de Correcciones y Rehabilitación de Miami-Dade.

    A fight between an estranged South Florida couple led to deadly gunfire, according to police. One of the deceased was a Correctional Officer with the Miami-Dade Corrections and Rehabilitation Department.

    Miami-Dade police responded to a "woman in distress call" at a home located at 19090 NW 57th Avenue Thursday night shortly after 10:00 p.m. There, they discovered a man and woman had both been shot.

    The man, 36-year-old Clifford Murph, was dead on the scene.

    Natasha Murph, 35, was transported to the hospital where she later died.

    Neighbors were shocked to hear about the violence. "It's crazy, it's just crazy. I mean I don't know what could have been so bad where that could happen," said one neighbor.

    The preliminary investigation reveals the couple was estranged and got into an argument that escalated to gunfire.

    No other information has been released; the investigation is still underway.
