Officials say an 81-year-old man shot his wheelchair-bound wife and cat, and then turned the gun on himself in their home about 25 miles from Key West.
A neighbor called the Monroe County Sheriff's Office about noon Wednesday after hearing shots fired. Sheriff's deputies arrived at the home on Little Torch Key but didn't enter the home right away, fearing a suspect could be inside.
The bomb squad arrived, and sent a robot inside before the SWAT team entered the home and found 77-year-old Joan Tucker in a room on the first floor. Upstairs, they found Glen Tucker, along with the couple's cat.
The sheriff's office said the motive for the killings was not immediately known.
