BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) – Birmingham police answering a call at a house with an open door and a crying child found a man and woman dead inside with an unharmed toddler.

News outlets report that police arrived at a home in north Birmingham about 9:30 a.m. Thursday to discover a door open.

Officers entered and found two adults in the bedroom in an apparent homicide that could be a murder-suicide.

A toddler found at the house appeared healthy.

The Department of Human Resources was working with authorities on a plan to ensure the child’s safety. Police didn’t immediately say how the two died.
