PERRYVILLE - Authorities in southeast Missouri say they're investigating a double shooting that appears to be a murder-suicide.

The Perry County Sheriff's Department said a man and woman were discovered shot at a residence in Perryville on Friday. A person found the couple and contacted the sheriff's department.

The Southeast Missourian reports that Sheriff Gary Schaaf says the deaths appear to be the result of a murder-suicide, but that it's too early to rule out a double suicide.

Schaaf said in a release that the victims were identified as 36-year-old Shawn J. Galeski, and 29-year-old Jamie L. Cole. Both were from Perryville.
