An investigation is ongoing into the apparent murder-suicide of a west-side couple.

The husband and wife, both in their 50s, were found dead Thursday morning by their adult daughter, said Sgt. Pete Dugan, spokesman for the Tucson Police Department.

All three lived in a home in the 3100 block of West Vuelta de los Mineros, near the intersection of West Sweetwater Drive and North Silverbell Road.

The names of the husband and wife have not been released.

Their daughter returned home at about 10 a.m., found her parents dead and called 911, Dugan said. A handgun was found near the bodies. Detectives are interviewing family, friends and neighbors, Dugan said.
