FAIRFIELD, Ohio — Police say a man and woman found dead in an SUV parked at a southwest Ohio day care center had both been shot in the head.

The bodies were discovered by a lawn care worker inside the vehicle outside Jelly Bean Junction Learning Centers at around 9:15 a.m., about three hours after the day care center opened.

Fairfield police Lt. Kevin Haddix says there were no other injuries and all the children are safe at the center some 20 miles north of Cincinnati.

The SUV was parked next to a trash bin about a dozen spaces from the front door and in front of a playground. Parents are allowed to pick up their children, but others are still at the center Monday afternoon.

The victims' identities haven't been released and it's not clear if they had any affiliation with the day-care center.
