UPDATE:

Upon the arrival of the Houston County Sheriff's deputies it was determined that the two victims, a 91 year old male and a 88 year old female (husband and wife) had gunshot wounds.

The preliminary investigation shows evidence of what may have been a suicide pact between the two (the husband assisted in the death of his wife and then took his own life).

UPDATE:

Neighbors say that the elderly woman involved had been sick for an extended period of time leading up to the incident.
