The deceased 46-year-old female victim and 69-year-old male were married and the only residents of the home in which the incident took place.

“The investigation has revealed that a single firearm was involved in the incident, the firearm was recovered during the scene examination. Investigators have determined that there was no evidence to indicate third party involvement and no arrests are anticipated.”
