CLEVELAND (AP) - Officials say a 76-year-old man fatally shot his wife and then turned the gun on himself after police arrived at their Cleveland home.

Commander Brandon Kutz tells Cleveland.com (https://bit.ly/2dTVrnH ) police were called to the home around noon on Wednesday after John Woods reported something bad had happened to his 70-year-old wife, Vondra.

Authorities say John Woods also said he was considering killing himself.

Officials say a SWAT team was called in after officers outside the home heard a gunshot.

Police say both were found dead in their bed.

Officials say family members said both had health issues.

The shooting comes a day after officials say Jorge Aviles entered a Cleveland Burger King restaurant where his ex-girlfriend Erlyn Rivera-Cintron worked, shot her in the head and then killed himself inside a bathroom.
