Corona police officers were dispatched to the home after receiving reports of a possible assault with injuries, Corona Police Department Public Information Officer Rozzy Rael has since said of their ongoing investigation.

After multiple failed attempts to contact the residents, members of the Corona Police Department’s Special Response Team used a battering ram attached to an armored tactical rescue vehicle to force entry into the residence.

After entering the residence SWAT members discovered Ryan Osbrink, 47, of Corona, deceased from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Officers also located the man’s wife, Heather Osbrink, 48, of Corona, deceased from multiple gunshot wounds, according to Rael.

Detectives from the Corona Police Department responded to the scene to investigate the circumstances surrounding the incident.
