The two were wanted in conncection with a shooting last weekend in Eugene, as well as other crimes.
The Clark County, Wash., Sheriff’s Office said detectives learned the two were staying at the Bridge Creek Apartments in a second story apartment.

Around 6:30 p.m., officers saw a suspect at the back sliding glass door of the apartment.
"A noise flash distraction device was deployed and both subjects retreated back into the apartment," the sheriff's office said. "A short time later perimeter units reported hearing two muffled pop sounds. SWAT team members used a robot to enter the inside of the apartment and subsequently found both individuals deceased from what appeared to be self-inflicted gunshot wounds."
