CLAYTON, New Jersey (WPVI) -- A man and woman are dead after an apparent murder-suicide in Gloucester County, investigators say.

Chopper 6 was over the scene Tuesday night at an apartment complex on the 300 block of North Broad Street in Clayton, New Jersey.

Police say they were dispatched to the Academy Arms Apartment Complex just after 7 p.m. for reports of a shooting.

At the scene, officers say they found 43-year-old Nina Sinclair-Green and 45-year-old Anthony Williams dead inside the apartment where they both had lived.

According to authorities, Williams had shot and killed Sinclair-Green as she was packing her belongings to move out.

After she was shot, investigators say Williams discharged several rounds from a semi-automatic handgun through the open front door, striking a vehicle in the adjacent parking lot.

Sinclair-Green's family was inside that car, police say. The family was reportedly at the scene to help her move out.

No injuries were reported by anyone inside the vehicle.

After shooting at the car, authorities say Williams killed himself inside the apartment.

Anyone with additional information on this incident is asked to contact the police at 856-384-5622.
