GRUNDY, Va. (AP) - Police say the fatal shootings of a Buchanan County couple are an apparent murder-suicide.

The Buchanan County Sheriff’s Office tells media outlets that 43-year-old Linda Sue Owens and her husband, 45-year-old Amos Bryant Owens, were found dead in their home in the Russell Prater area on Sunday morning.

The sheriff’s office says investigators determined that Amos Bryant Owens shot his wife and then himself. Police found a gun at the scene that is believed to have been used in the shootings.

The bodies were sent to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for autopsy.
