Police: 2 dead in apparent murder-suicide in Barry County


Michigan State Police say a husband and wife are dead following an apparent murder-suicide at a home in Barry County.

TV stations WOOD and WWMT report police responded Sunday afternoon to a 911 call regarding a domestic dispute in Carlton Township.

The call was disconnected and Detective First Lt. Chuck Christensen says police arrived to find the husband, who was in his 50s, at the home with a gun.

Christensen says the man then fatally shot himself and is believed to have fatally shot his wife, who was in her 40s.

Names weren't immediately released.

Police remained at the scene late Sunday and details of what happened were under investigation.
