November 20, 2018

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — Police say a 66-year-old man fatally shot a 67-year-old woman and a dog at an Olympia home before turning the gun on himself.

The Olympian reports Olympia police responded to the home Friday morning after getting a 911 call in which the caller didn’t say anything.

Police Lt. Paul Lower says no one answered the door, but police saw through the window a woman with blood around her.

The coroner’s office identified her as Sharilyn Ketola on Monday. She died of a gunshot wound.

The man was identified as James Wavrin. Lower says a shotgun was found next to him.

Police are investigating the deaths as a homicide-suicide.

Lower says the man and woman lived together.
