MEAD VALLEY  — A woman was found fatally shot in a Mead Valley home and soon after, a man described as her spouse was found dead of a gunshot wound in a wrecked vehicle, authorities said Sunday.

Deputies responding to a report of a woman shot found the woman’s body about 8:20 p.m. Friday in the 20000 block of Rider Street, said Riverside County sheriff’s Sgt. Wallace Clear.

Just before 9 that night, the California Highway Patrol requested help from the Sheriff’s Department regarding a solo-vehicle crash at Old Elsinore Road and Aloha Street in the Perris area, Clear said.

The CHP log showed the initial report to authorities was for a Honda CRV that crashed into a brick wall.
