HOISINGTON, Kan. (AP) _ The Barton County Sheriff's office says a couple died in an apparent murder-suicide at their rural home.

Sheriff Brian Bellendir says in a news release that the bodies of 35-year-old Justin Heggemeier and 39-year-old Michelle Heggemeier were found Tuesday night at a farm northeast of Hoisington.

Officers went to the house after a juvenile called to say shots had been fired at the home.

Bellinder says it appears Justin Heggemeier shot his wife at close range and then killed himself. The juvenile apparently hid in the closet and was not injured.
