Authorities say they believe a man killed a woman in her 70s before fatally shooting himself at a home in southern Michigan.

The Jackson Citizen Patriot reports the Jackson County sheriff's department and Napoleon Township police officers responded Friday to check on the woman after a basement tenant of the home called 911 to say that she hadn't been seen in several days.

Officers spotted the woman face down in a hallway at the house and saw the man moving about inside, but he refused to leave. Officers heard a possible gunshot before entering the home around 2:30 a.m. Saturday and found both of them death.

WILX-TV reports authorities say the woman had been dead for some time. Names weren't immediately released.

The deaths are under investigation.
