OTTAWA -- A husband and wife are dead after an incident in Ottawa's west end.

Officers were called to a house in Nepean this morning after a 12-year-old-boy found his parents' bodies.

Staff Sergeant Monique Ackland says police believe a 51-year-old man shot his wife, then turned the gun on himself.

The dead have been identified as Bruce and Brenda McDonald.

Police won't say whether there was a history of domestic violence at the home.

The 12-year-old boy and two other children were in the home at the time.
