Delaware Police: Man Shot Wife, Then Self at Nursing Home

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP)- Delaware State police have confirmed they think a man killed his wife, then himself, in a shooting at a nursing home.           

Delaware State Police Master Corporal Melissa Jaffe said in a statement that investigators identified 82-year-old Louis M. Camerota as the shooter and his wife, 79-year-old Gail F. Camerota, as the victim at the ManorCare Health Services facility.           

Jaffe said Louis Camerota went to the Wilmington nursing home Saturday to visit his wife who was a resident there. He approached her in a common area of the facility, where he shot her once before turning the weapon on himself. They both died at the scene.           

An autopsy ruled the death a murder-suicide.
