CROSSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Tennessee authorities say a 74-year-old man has been charged in the deaths of two people, including his wife.

News media outlets report that Crossville police officers responded to a reported shooting at the Cumberland County school bus garage on Friday. When officers arrived, authorities say they found the bodies of 58-year-old Joy J. Nostrom and 54-year-old Mark Gunter.

Joy Nostrom was pronounced dead at the scene. Gunter was transported to a hospital where he died.

Authorities say Joy Nostrom’s husband, Warren Nostrom, was found injured with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. He was airlifted to a hospital where he was treated and released.
