WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - Investigators believe a man fatally shot his wife before turning the gun on himself in a south Wichita home late Thursday night. 

Officers responded at around 11:45 p.m. to a shooting in the 800 block of West Mount Vernon, near Pawnee and McLean. Police spokesperson Trevor Macy said a 911 caller from out of state reported that a woman at the south Wichita home had been shot by her husband, "who had called the out-of-state party beforehand to tell him what he was going to do."

Police forced entry into the home where they found 46-year-old Tuyen Nguyen and 71-year-old Bay Le with gunshot wounds. Le was pronounced dead at the scene. His wife died at a local hospital.

Macy said in a release, "It is believed that Le shot Nguyen and then himself."
