A man apparently shot and killed his wife at their residence in the Country Club Park area of Los Angeles and then fatally shot himself, authorities said today.
Officers sent to the 1000 block of South Lucerne Boulevard about 2 a.m. found the bodies, along with a note and a handgun, said Los Angeles police
Officer Norma Eisenman. The contents of the note were not immediately revealed.
Investigators believe the man shot the woman and then himself, Eisenman said.
Authorities withheld the names of the man, who was in his 70s, and the woman, who was in her 50s, pending family notification, said coroner’s Assistant Chief Ed Winter.
