They had been shot. Their partner is suspected of being responsible for the crime.

Editor's Note: This is one of those cases whether the gender identity of the victim is not obvious. We have no photos, and the news reports refer to the victim as male. The only clue that the victim may have been trans is that one report states that the body was "a man dressed as a woman". They could have been (for example) a crossdresser, genderfluid, genderqueer, nonbinary, or a trans woman - without more information we have no way of knowing.
