Investigators and evidence technicians processed the area Monday and recovered a pistol, as well as “evidence that a firearm had been discharged,” Covelli said.
Neither the woman nor the man had valid Firearm Owner Identification cards, Covelli said.
Sheriff’s deputies responded about 12:20 p.m. Monday to the single-family home in the 5400 block of North Tall Oaks Drive for a report of someone who was shot, according to the release.
Police did not say who notified them about the apparent shooting.
When officers arrived, they found the woman’s body inside the home with “a significant injury,” Covelli said.
There is no threat to the community while the investigation is ongoing, as the situation appears to be isolated and confined to the inside of the home, according to a news release the sheriff’s department sent Monday evening.
An autopsy is being scheduled and additional information will be released as it becomes available.
The Albemarle County Police Department would like to thank Albemarle County Fire Rescue, the F.B.I. Safe Streets Task Force, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives for their support and assistance with this investigation.

(AP) – Police have arrested a male relative in the death of a woman whose body was found at an apartment complex in North St. Paul.
Officers were called to the apartment complex about 7 p.m. Friday after they were asked to do a welfare check. When no one responded to the officers’ knocks, a maintenance worker let them into the apartment.
They found the body of a 46-year-old woman who “appeared to have died from unnatural causes.”
The St. Paul Pioneer Press says the man was arrested in St. Paul and booked into the Ramsey County Jail. No other information about the case was released, including the relationship between the two.

WAYNESBORO – A man has been charged with second-degree murder after police found a woman’s body in a room at the Royal Inn Motel in Waynesboro on Saturday morning, according to a press release from the Waynesboro Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office and the Waynesboro Police Department.
Police ruled Deborah Jean Allen’s death a homicide because of blunt force trauma, the release says. Stuarts Draft resident Shawn Preston Jones, 42, is being held without bail at Middle River Regional Jail pending a hearing Thursday.
Police took Jones into custody Tuesday at the University of Virginia Hospital, the release says. He was admitted to the hospital after being involved in a vehicle crash on South Delphine Avenue early Saturday morning.
