Two deceased inside West Seattle home

On October 19th, at approximately 3:15 am, a man from a residence in the 2600 Block of 50th Avenue SW called 911 stating that he had just shot his wife.  Officers responded to the residence and immediately set up containment.  Negotiators were called to the scene and attempted to make contact with the individual inside. 

SWAT was called to the scene and took over the tactical portion of the call.  Negotiators continued to attempt to make contact with the person(s) inside, but to no avail.

Shortly before 7:00 am, SWAT made entry into the house.  During a search of the interior, they located a deceased elderly man and woman inside one of the rooms.  Detectives then responded to the scene where they began their investigation.
