A man shot dead his estranged wife before killing himself as the woman dropped off the couple's two children for a visit.
The woman arrived at 5.15pm on Saturday afternoon with their daughter, eight, and six-year-old son for a Father's Day visit.
The children had started walking from their father's home to another building on the property where their grandparents live in Lacey, Washington.
The couple got into an argument before the man, 39, shot his 31-year-old wife at the rural home.
On hearing the gunshots, the couple's eight-year-old daughter ran back to her parents and found them both lying on the ground with gunshot wounds to the head.
She then ran to tell her grandparents who dialled 911.
Thurston County Sheriff’s Detective Sgt Ray Brady told komo.com: 'Preliminary indications show it appears to be a murder-suicide.'
The couple have not yet been identified by authorities and officers said they had never been called to the address before.
