FISHERSVILLE, Va. (AP) – Augusta County police say a man and his wife have died in an apparent murder-suicide at a nursing home.
Sheriff’s Deputy Felicia Glick tells media outlets that investigators believe the 84-year-old man shot his 83-year-old wife and then himself. The shootings occurred around 11 am. Saturday in a room at Shenandoah Nursing Home in Fishersville.
Glick says the man was visiting his wife. She says police don’t know whether the woman was a temporary patient or a resident at the nursing home, which is a rehabilitation center.
The couple’s names haven’t been released.
