State police say the deaths of two people found shot in a central Pennsylvania home are believed to have been a murder-suicide.

Police in Lewistown said troopers responded early Wednesday to a reported domestic disturbance in Fermanagh Township in Juniata County.

Troopers said they believe David Jay Britcher of Mifflintown is believed to have shot Tammy Lynn Dorward, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said Britcher sustained a gunshot wound believed to have been self-inflicted and was later pronounced dead at Geisinger Lewistown Hospital.

Troopers said the Juniata County coroner's office is assisting with the investigation.
