BUTTE, Mont. (AP) - Authorities are investigating an apparent murder-suicide at a home outside of Butte.

The Montana Standard reports (https://goo.gl/1ly6TR ) a man and a woman were found shot to death in the Ramsay home Friday morning, and autopsies will be performed at the State Crime Lab in Missoula.

Butte-Silver Bow Sheriff Ed Lester says he believes the man and woman were married, but he was unable to confirm their relationship. Their names have not been released.

Officers went to the home after someone alerted police that she was unable to contact her female friend.

Lester says more details will be released in the coming days, adding that “It’s a tragedy when two people’s lives end like this.”
