Police are investigating an apparent murder-suicide on the southeast side of the city.

Two bodies, a man and a woman were found inside of a Days Inn hotel room near SE 25th and I-35 Wednesday evening.

Investigators say 40-year-old Rasheen Sanders shot and killed 27-year-old Eniya Aeon, then turned the gun on himself. No word on their relationship, although neighbors believe the murder victim may have been seeing multiple men.

"I knew her, I knew her very well. She was my upstairs neighbor," said Janice Jackson. "I looked out for her children when they came outside to play."

Jackson says she and Aeon were like family. She says the young mother had two young sons and was working to get her life on track.

"I'm really shocked, and surprised, because I can't see how she got in that position. I really can't see how that happened. I'm just stunned to hear about it, and sad," said Jackson.

According to Oklahoma City police, just before 6:00 p.m. Wednesday, officers responded to reports of shots fired and a domestic dispute inside the hotel room. Both Sanders and Aeon have been in trouble with OCPD more than once.

"You never know what people do outside of their home," said Jackson. "You know, it might have been something that happened just to her."

Now two young boys are without a mom.

"My heart goes out to them because they don't have a mother," said Jackson.

Neighbors tell News 9 Aeon was attending Oklahoma City Community College. The murder-suicide is still under investigation.
