HOMER GLEN, Ill. (WLS) -- Two people were found dead Saturday at a home in southwest suburban Homer Glen after an apparent murder-suicide, according to the Will County Sheriff's Office.

Officers responded to the home in the 16000-block of Meadow Crest Drive around 10 a.m. for a report of shots fired, according to a statement.

Deputies discovered a 54-year-old woman and 56-year-old man in a bedroom, unresponsive and each with a single gunshot wound. Paramedics were unsuccessful in their attempts to resuscitate them.
