(Newser) – Police in Liverpool are investigating a suspected triple murder at the former home of one of the city's most famous sons. A 30-year-old man was arrested Tuesday night after a woman and two young children were found dead in an apartment on Falkner Street, where John Lennon lived with first wife Cynthia after they were married in 1962, the Guardian reports.

Nearby homes were evacuated amid reports of a gas leak at the ground-floor property, reports the Liverpool Echo. The suspect, 30, was hospitalized after falling ill. Police say they believe this was a domestic incident and they're not seeking any other suspects. Neighbors say the apartment in the Toxteth district was a regular stop for Beatles fans touring the city. (Read more Liverpool stories.)
