"TULSA, OK — Tulsa police are on the scene of a murder-suicide in west Tulsa. The bodies of a husband and wife were discovered Tuesday afternoon at a home in the 6300 block of South 29th West Place.
Officers ... came to the house at 2:08 p.m. on a well-being check, requested by the couple's daughter.
"Homicide Sergeant Dave Walker said there had been `some history, some drama,` at the house in the last week.
"The daughter of the female victim went into the home with police, and they discovered the body of her mother, shot and killed in a bedroom. Police then found the man's body dead in another bedroom, also of a gunshot wound.
"`It's unfortunate, but it doesn't appear like anything other than a homicide occurred, then the suspect shot and killed himself in another part of the house,` Walker said.
"Neighbors say a man, woman and children live at the address.
"The daughter said her mom worked with the elderly, as a therapeutic registered nurse. She said there was a fight Friday and the police showed up, guns drawn, and took the man away in handcuffs.
"Police say the man didn't go to jail, but was taken to a mental health facility."
