JACKSONVILLE, Fla. –
An 84-year-old Jacksonville man shot and killed his 84-year-old wife, then shot and killed himself at a park Tuesday morning, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office. Police said both were suffering from health problems.
Police said that at about 8 a.m., a maintenance worker found the bodies of George and Nancy McCallum lying outside their car near the basketball courts at Glynlea Park on Altama Road on the Southside.
Police said they found two guns and initially believed both deaths may have been suicides, but they later ruled the deaths a murder-suicide.
“It looks like it’s isolated between these two individuals, so there’s nothing to be concerned about,” said Sgt. Dan Janson.
Police said no one else appeared to be involved.
