A man and woman in their 80s were found dead Wednesday in Westwood, and authorities believe they died in a murder-suicide.

Los Angeles police Officer Tony Im said officers were called to the 500 block of Veteran Avenue about 8:45 a.m. for a welfare check.

At the residence, police found a man and woman each with fatal gunshot wounds, Im said.

No foul play is suspected. Police did not say whether a gun was recovered at the scene.

Their identities were not released pending notification of family members.
