Police responding to a call at a Shawnee house Sunday evening found a man and his wife dead in what they say appears to be a murder and suicide.

Police went to the house on an unknown situation about 9:25 p.m. in the 10800 block of West 72nd Terrace. Inside the home, they found the bodies of Deborah K. Clare, 57, and her husband, Michael A. Clare, 46. Investigators believe Michael Clare shot his wife and then himself.

A motive has not been determined.

Both people lived at the residence.
