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.
