Amherst police are investigating an apparent murder-suicide in a home on Dawnbrook Lane. Two bodies were found there shortly after 8:00 Friday morning.

The names of the victims, who were elderly, have not been released.  Initial reports indicate a woman's body was found inside the house and her husband's body was found in the garage.

Police say a sawed-off shotgun was used, and that the wife was in poor health.
