CHANDLER, AZ — Police have identified a man and woman found dead at a Chandler home Sunday morning in what appears to be a murder-suicide.
Chandler police spokesperson Det. Zermeno said Sunday evening that there were no outstanding suspects in connection to the shooting near Hunt Highway and Gilbert Road.
In a Monday release, Zermeno said the couple has been identified as 76-year-old Sheldon Butler and 74-year-old Linda Butler.
Sheldon reportedly called police Sunday morning saying he had shot his wife. Responding officers arrived at the home around 6:30 a.m., where they found a man and woman dead inside, both with single gunshot wounds.
Detectives later determined the shooting to be a murder-suicide, though the motive is unknown.
A gun recovered from the scene is set to have ballistic tests completed, Zermeno said.
