"JACKSONVILLE< FL — Two people have died in what Jacksonville police are investigating as a possible murder-suicide in a high-end Baymeadows subdivision this morning, Jacksonville police said.
"The incident occurred about 9:30 a.m. at 8799 Harpers Glen Court in the East Hampton subdivision off Baymeadows Road, said Sgt. Lonnie Mills of the Sheriff's Office homicide unit.
"Mills said a neighbor heard gunshots and saw a man stagger outside the home. Mills said that victim, 73, was shot multiple times and taken to Shands Jacksonville, where he died.
"Mills said police found a 64-year-old woman dead inside the home of a single gunshot. Mills said a weapon was found inside the home and another outside the home.
"Mills said police are still trying to reach next of kin before identifying the victims or releasing information about their relationship. Neighbors said an elderly couple had been living in the home for less than a year.
"Mills said police are still investigating the crime scene, but he wanted to assure neighbors that the deaths were not a random act and that there were no outstanding suspects. He said the crime scene was contained to the property."
