    A man shot and killed his wife then shot himself Sunday afternoon, according to Radnor Police.

    The incident happened in the guest house of a property at 319 S. Wayne Ave. in Wayne. The victims are identified as 49-year-old Timothy Rooney and his 48-year-old wife Linda Rooney. One of the couple's three children, an 8-year-old boy, was in a bedroom of the main home.

    Police say there were signs of struggle and that a note was left at the scene.

    "It appears to be a domestic situation," said Radnor Police Superintendent William Colarulo.

    A call was placed to 9-1-1 from the residence. Police say the caller was most likely the husband. A handgun was found on the scene and is believed to be the weapon used.

    The couple's 17 year-old daughter came home to be with her younger brother. Another sibling is away at boarding school. Police are seeking to make contact with her.

    The family, who is originally from Texas, moved to Radnor about a year ago, according to authorities.
