SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) - A husband and wife are dead in what appears to be a murder-suicide at a house in south Shreveport.
Multiple gunshots were reported about 4:20 a.m. Monday. Police identified the victims as 40-year-old Ryan Douglas, and his 49-year-old wife, Carolyn.
Authorities say the husband was the apparent shooter.
Police spokesman Marcus Hines told KTBS-TV that the couple's daughter ran from the house when the shooting started, went to a neighbor's house and called 911.
When a police special-response team arrived, they forced entry into the house and retrieved a 3-year-old boy believed to be the couple's grandson. The child was not hurt and immediately returned to his mother.
