An elderly man and woman were found fatally shot in an apparent murder-suicide at the Beverly Hilton last night, police said.

The Beverly Hills shooting was reported around 10:50 pm last night and the coroner's picked up the bodies early this morning, City News Service reported. Beverly Hills Lt. Mark Rosen told the news agency, "Homicide investigators believe that they are victims of an apparent murder-suicide."

Police described the victims as "elderly" but they aren't saying who shot who, according to the Associated Press.

The 39th Annual Daytime Emmys are scheduled to be held there later today. It wasn't clear if the couple had any connection to the event or if the deaths would affect the event in any way.

Homicides are, of course, exceptionally rare in Beverly Hills. Before last night's shootings, there were just six homicides in the city since 2008, the AP reported. The Beverly Hilton has seen a lot of action this year: Whitney Houston's body was found submerged in a bathtub in the hotel earlier this year.
