CASA GRANDE, Ariz. -

Pinal County authorities are investigating the deaths of two people as a possible murder-suicide.

On Sunday night, PCSO officials received a 911 call regarding shots fired in the 10000 block of North Baltimore Drive.  When deputies arrived at the scene, the bodies of a 46-year-old man and a 45-year-old woman were found in a residential yard.

Sheriff's spokesman Tim Gaffney says male and female were husband and wife and they appeared to have died from gunshot wounds.

Gaffney stated, "Based on evidence at the scene, detectives have determined the man shot his wife and then shot himself. Detectives are still in the process of trying to notify next of kin who are out of state."

At this time, it's not clear what the motive for the shooting was and the case remains under investigation.

The identities of the deceased were not released.
