New Orleans police probe possible murder-suicide

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.
