Wichita Police say a man killed his grandmother and her husband before turning the gun on himself Saturday.

On Saturday, a tenant of a multi-unit dwelling in the 300 block of North Ash called 911 after seeing a person on the floor from an outside window.

Officers responded and found three bodies inside, two men and a woman. All had been shot to death.

Police now believe one of those men, 39-year-old Adrian Urbano, killed the other two, one of whom was his grandmother, then shot himself.

Those victims have been identified as 78-year-old Bertha Ellis and her husband, 77-year-old Daryle Ellis.

Police are still investigating what may have led up to the shooting, but the tenant who called 911 also told them there had possibly been a disturbance at the residence on Thursday evening. Police said the three lived together.

There have been 28 homicides in Wichita this year.
