Morris shot Torres dead in an upstairs room of the house across from Bergenfield High School before turning the gun on himself in a basement utility room, Bergen County Prosecutor Gurbir Grewal confirmed Sunday.

Morris, whom Grewal referred to as the deceased suspect, and Torres, whom he called the victim, had four children and a history of domestic issues, according to the prosecutor.

Borough police were called to the West Clinton Avenue home at 10:18 a.m. after the boy ran to a neighbor and told them "his parents weren't breathing," Grewal told Daily Voice.

The boy found both bodies, he said.
