Coroner Nicole Meyer tells The Herald-Time it appears Robert White shot his wife twice and then shot himself Friday. Bloomington police found a handgun at the scene.

Police say Ruth White had recently been moved into an assisted care room at Meadowood, but her husband didn't live there.

The bodies were found in a room the woman shared with another person. Police say no one else was hurt or threatened.
