BECKER, Minn. (AP) Sherburne County officials are investigating an apparent murder-suicide in the Clear Lake Township.

County Sheriff Joel Brott says a woman 911 at about 1:30 p.m. Friday and said someone told her he had shot his wife and was threatening to shoot himself.

The St. Cloud Times reports deputies on the scene in Clear Lake Township were able to talk with Christopher Norrbom by telephone, but negotiations broke down.

Officers then got into an attached garage where they discovered the body of Janell Norrbom. They entered the home 6:41 p.m. and found Christopher Norrbom dead.

Officials are not looking for any other suspect. The man and woman were both 47-years-old.
