Double shooting believed to be murder-suicide

JONESBOROUGH, Tenn. — A sheriff says a double shooting in East Tennessee appears to be a murder-suicide caused by marital problems.

Washington County Sheriff Ed Graybeal told The Johnson City Press (http://bit.ly/12bouYY) on Friday that a neighbor called deputies to check on the couple at their home in Jonesborough. When deputies arrived, they found two bodies near the back door.

He said officers think the shooting happened on Wednesday.

Police didn't immediately release the names of the couple since relatives were still being notified.
