An 81-year-old man shot his wheelchair-bound wife and cat, and then turned the gun on himself in their Florida Keys home, officials said.
A neighbor called the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office about noon Wednesday after hearing shots fired.
Sheriff’s deputies arrived at the home on Little Torch Key but didn’t enter the home immediately, fearing a suspect could be inside.
The bomb squad arrived, and sent a robot inside before the SWAT team entered the home and found 77-year-old Joan Tucker in a room on the first floor.
The Miami Herald reported that Glen Tucker was found upstairs, along with the couple’s cat.
The sheriff’s office said the motive for the killings was not immediately known.
Little Torch Key is a small island about 25 miles from Key West.
R.I.P to all, but what the hell is up with shooting the damn cat?!?!?
