NEW ORLEANS (AP) - New Orleans police are investigating what they believe is a murder-suicide near the Fair Grounds.
A police spokesman says the call came in Thursday just after 8 p.m. as members of the department's Special Operations Division and Fifth District detectives were conducting a wellness check on the resident of a home near the racetrack.
WVUE-TV reports once inside, officers found the victims - a man and a woman - on the floor of a bedroom.
The woman had been shot once. Police say the man's gunshot wound appeared to be self-inflicted.
Police say the couple may have been dead for as long as a day.
The victims' identities have not been released.
