Stephanie Moseley, a star of VH1’s NBA cheerleading drama Hit the Floor, and her husband, the rapper Earl Hayes, died Monday in a suspected murder-suicide, police confirmed to PEOPLE.

Los Angeles police responded early Monday to reports of shots being fired in Park La Brea, and found Moseley, 30, and Hayes, 34, in their apartment, both with gunshot wounds.

Both were pronounced dead at the scene. The initial investigation suggested Hayes shot Moseley to death and then took his own life, police said.

“We are incredibly saddened to hear the news of the passing of Stephanie Moseley,” VH1 said in a statement. “VH1 and the entire Hit the Floor family send our thoughts and condolences to her family and friends at this difficult time.”

Friends of the couple told L.A. TV station KTLA that they had been having problems.

“No situation’s perfect,” said Eva Marcille Pigford, a friend and fellow model. “Stephanie was an absolute angel. She really was She’s connected so many people. She’s just loved. She will never, ever, ever, ever be forgotten.”

Moseley was born in Vancouver and drew acclaim as a dancer from a young age, according to the biography on her website. In her early 20s, she joined Britney Spears‘s dance crew and toured with her in the U.S. She also danced on a Janet Jackson tour.

Among her TV roles, she appeared as Jamie Foxx’s wife on his 2006 NBC special Jamie Foxx: Unpredictable.
