WILDWOOD, Mo. (AP) - St. Louis County police say a man and his son were found dead in a state park near St. Louis.

The bodies of 57-year-old Douglas Potter and his 20-year-old son Joseph were found Tuesday near a hiking trail in Babler State Park in Wildwood. Spokesman Brian Schellman says police believe Douglas Potter shot his son and then killed himself.

A couple walking in the park found the bodies and a vehicle that belonged to one of the men was discovered nearby.

Authorities evacuated the park except for a group of students who were on a camping trip in an area away from where the bodies were found.
