Police have identified the bodies of two Forest Park High School students who were found dead in Triangle Monday night.

Desiree M. Patrick, 17, of 3902 Oakdale Circle in Triangle, and Quirinius "Ryain" S. Williams, 18, of 5319 Daybreak Lane in Woodbridge, were found in a bedroom by Patrick's father around 5 p.m. Monday, after he returned home from work.

According to Prince William County police, both students died of gunshot wounds. The investigation has revealed that the teens both agreed to commit suicide, police said. Investigators said they did not want to speculate on the circumstances surrounding the deaths, but said they do not believe anyone else was involved.

"We're not looking for a murder suspect here and I don't want to say anything more than that," Prince William County Police Maj. Ray Colgan told reporters Tuesday morning. 

Due to Tuesday's statewide elections, Forest Park High School was closed for the day. However, a Prince William County Public Schools spokesman said the building was open for mourners, according to InsideNOVA. There will also be grief counselors at the school on Wednesday, school officials said.
