A man and a woman were found dead in a home Friday in northwest Indiana in what is being investigated as a murder-suicide, police said.

Officers responded about 12:15 p.m. to a home in the 800 block of Fayette Street for a domestic disturbance and found the pair unresponsive inside with gunshot wounds, police said.

The man, 23, and the 35-year-old woman were pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
