LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Police say a man fatally shot his wife at their Lincoln residence before killing himself.

Officers sent May 2 to check a reported shooting found the bodies of 35-year-old Rasha Khaled and 48-year-old Adnan Almansouri. Police say the couple’s five children, ranging in age from 3 to 14, were in the home during the shootings but were not injured.

Police said in a news release Wednesday that interviews and evidence show Almansouri shot Khaled four times before shooting himself in the head once. The two had a volatile relationship with a history of verbal disputes. Police say Almansouri had repeatedly talked about suicide.
