STUART, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say they’re investigating what appears to be a murder-suicide at a central Florida home.

Treasure Coast Newspapers (https://goo.gl/MlPv3e) reports that a man and a woman were found dead Monday afternoon in Martin County.

Sheriff’s spokeswoman Christine Christofek says deputies responded after concerned co-workers went to the home to check on the woman who lived there. They called 911 after looking through a window and seeing the woman lying on a recliner.

Deputies say both people appeared to have died from gunshot wounds, though police didn’t immediately say which person was the shooter.

The names of the dead man and woman weren’t immediately released.
