PLYMOUTH TWP., Pa. -

Police are investigating a murder and suicide that occurred inside a Montgomery County home.

At 5:05 p.m. Sunday, Plymouth Township police responded to the first block of Wilmer Avenue in the township, after a 911 caller asked them to check on the well-being of the residents.

Inside the home, they found a man and a woman, both deceased from gunshot wounds.

Their identities are being withheld until family members are notified of their deaths.

Autopsies conducted Monday by officials in the Montgomery County coroner's office determined the female died of two gunshot wounds, one to the back and one to the head. The male died of a single "intra-oral' gunshot, meaning he put the gun in his mouth.

The female's death was ruled a homicide, the male's a suicide.

The deaths are being investigated by the Montgomery County district attorney's office and Plymouth Township police.
