A couple were found dead in an apparent murder-suicide late Tuesday at their residence near Valley View and Oakey boulevards, Metro Police said.

Police received a welfare check request at about 7:15 for a woman who hadn't shown up at work for several days and didn't contact her employer, police said. Police arrived at the residence in the 2100 block of Plaza Del Padre to find the woman, 62, dead with a gunshot wound.

The man was found next to her with a self-inflicted gunshot wound, Metro Lt. Mark Reddon said.

Metro homicide detectives were on scene to begin the investigation.
