LIVINGSTON, La. (AP) — A Louisiana sheriff says a husband and wife died in an apparent murder-suicide that followed an argument.

The Advocate reports that deputies had not been called out to any domestic violence complaints at the couple’s address in Livingston before responding to the shooting.

An investigation into the incident is ongoing. No further details were released.
