Two Dead In Hospital Shooting

"DOVER, NH — A New Hampshire man wrote an upbeat post about his plan to kill his ailing wife in a `double suicide`—and then carried out the deed inside her hospital room.

"`Love you all, peace out!` concluded the message, which was posted on Facebook just minutes before Mark Lavoie carried out the murder/suicide inside of Dover’s Wentworth-Douglass Hospital Tuesday morning.

"Authorities did not identify the shooter or the victim, but Lavoie’s sister confirmed her brother was the gunman.

"Dorcas Lavoie said her brother had acted `out of love` for his wife Katherine, 49.

"`They both loved each other very much,` she told The Associated Press.

"In his posting, Lavoie said he wanted to put his wife out of her misery.

"Police went to the hospital just after 6 a.m. after a 911 call reported gunshots in a private room in the critical care unit.

"`While the investigation is still in the early stages and ongoing, the two deaths appear to be the result of a murder/suicide,` the New Hampshire Attorney General’s office said in a statement."
