LACEY, Wash. (AP) - Officials with the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office say a man and woman have been found shot to death in an apparent homicide-suicide east of Lacey.

Lt. Cliff Ziesemer says a 79-year-old woman shot her 82-year-old husband with a shotgun in the bathroom of their mobile home before turning the gun on herself. A family member discovered the couple in the home at about 11 a.m. Friday.

The Olympian reports (http://goo.gl/hLLqHY) the husband had a terminal illness and had been in hospice care. Ziesemer says family members had no indication that the couple had been planning the shooting.

Authorities are investigating.

The man and woman have not been identified.
