AVON, Ohio (AP) - Police say a man and woman were found dead near Cleveland after a woman reported her 77-year-old father called to say that he had just killed his ill wife and planned to kill himself.

Police in Avon told media outlets in Cleveland that the bodies of the man and his 73-year-old wife were found Thursday morning inside their bedroom in the northeast Ohio city. Both had been shot.

The couple’s daughter told investigators her father had been depressed over her mother’s poor health and her upcoming move into a nursing home planned for later this week.

Investigators have not released the couple’s names.

Neighbors were evacuated as a precaution after calls to the home went unanswered and a SWAT team assisted investigators at the scene.
