A couple who died in an apparent murder-suicide at a Kearny Mesa-area hotel were residents of Las Vegas, authorities said Tuesday.

San Diego Police said 43-year-old Carlos Sanchez killed Delores Zoraya Sanchez, 36, then turned the gun on himself inside a room at the Four Points by Sheraton hotel on Aero Drive near Kearny Villa Road around 10:30 a.m. Sunday.

Officers sent to the hotel after someone heard gunshots found their bodies on a bed, San Diego Police Lt. Mike Hastings said.
