WHITE LAKE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WJBK) -

Police in White Lake Township are investigating an apparent murder-suicide.

Monday night, officers were called to a house on Danforth Street near Union Lake after an eight-year-old boy who lives there ran to a neighbor's house.

The officers found the bodies of a man and woman inside the home.

The deceased have been identified as 33-year-old Lorian Handy and 37-year-old Jason Handy.  We're told the woman had been shot several times, and the man had suffered a single gunshot wound.  They were the boy's mother and stepfather.

The boy was not hurt and is now with his biological father.
