SPARKS, Nev. (AP) - Reno police are investigating what appears to be a murder-suicide at a home on the southwest side of town.

Police say officers responding to a request for a welfare check found an elderly couple dead in the house on Mountain Vista Way at about 11:30 a.m. Monday.

Police told KOLO-TV that both the man and woman were terminally ill and were the only two living in the home.

Investigators say it is an isolated situation and there is no threat to the community.

The names of the victims have not been released.
