RIO RANCHO, N.M. (AP) - Rio Rancho police say the deaths of a 56-year-old man and his 7-year-old daughter were likely a homicide-suicide.

The bodies were found in the man’s home Wednesday evening after his ex-wife — the girl’s mother — went to the home to get her daughter.

Police said Thursday they’re waiting for findings from the state Office of the Medical Investigator but that it appears the father shot his daughter before turning the gun on himself.

Names weren’t released.
