"EATON, WI — Two people were shot dead late Saturday in what authorities say was a murder/suicide.
"The victims were in the midst of a `divorce situation,` Brown County Sheriff John Gossage said Sunday morning. Their names had not been released as of 1 p.m.
"There were witnesses to the first shooting, Gossage said. The witnesses heard the shot that killed the second person.
"The incident occurred at a house off County T between Wisconsin 29 and County JJ in the town of Eaton, east of Green Bay. Deputies had responded to the scene with a SWAT vehicle.
"Authorities confirmed the deaths shortly before 11 p.m. Saturday, but apparently had been on the scene for nearly two hours beforehand. They located a long gun near one of the victims, according to radio transmissions.
