Gossip blog TMZ.com is reporting that UFC, WEC, and IFL middleweight veteran Justin Levens was found dead along with his wife in their home in Laguna Niguel, CA as a result of gunshot wounds.  Police are investigating the death as a possible murder/suicide:

TMZ has learned former UFC fighter Justin Levens and his wife were found dead from gunshot wounds in a home in Laguna Niguel, Calif. earlier today.

Sherdog's Loretta Hunt spoke with the Orange County Sheriff's Department:

“Preliminarily, until they finish the investigation, it is being looked at as a murder-suicide,” said Lt. V. Wilson.

Wilson said deputies and investigators were dispatched to the residence Wednesday after being informed of the deaths. Wilson would not identify who had found the bodies and/or contacted authorities, though a CBS 2 online report said the mother of the deceased female had discovered the bodies and called police, who arrived around 2:30 p.m. PST.

An investigation into the deaths was opened on Wednesday, which Wilson described as “ongoing.”

Levens was 9-8 in his MMA career, fighting such notable names as Jorge Santiago and Evan Tanner in the UFC, Vladimir Matyushenko in the IFL, and Scott Smith in the WEC.

Levens formerly trained under UFC legend Marco Ruas but was recently based out of Erik Paulson's CSW camp.
