Man and Woman Found Shot to Death in Miami Lakes Apartment

Police are investigating after the bodies of a man and woman who were shot to death were found in an apartment in Miami Lakes Thursday morning.

The discovery was made inside an apartment near New Barn Road and Main Street, Miami-Dade Police said. Several officers were at the scene and had the apartment building blocked off with yellow tape.

Miami-Dade Police spokesperson Chris Thomas said a neighbor reported hearing gunshots in the area around 8:15 a.m.

Officers arrived and found the body of the man, who lives at the apartment. The body of the woman was also found in the apartment, but it's unknown if she also lives there, Thomas said.

Police later identified the victims as 26-year-old Michael Tarulli and 32-year-old Jenny Koonoolai-Jagdeo.

"At the moment we're seeking as much information as we can, obviously someone did this to these two individuals so we're trying to piece together exactly what happened and to possibly see if anyone knows what happened or who this individual is," Thomas said.
