WATERTOWN, Conn. (WTIC Radio) – Watertown police say an elderly man and woman were found shot to death in a home Tuesday morning.

Police were called to the single-family home on Phillips Dr. around 7:20 a.m. on a report of gunfire to find the 87-year-old woman and 90-year-old man dead, said authorities. Until autopsies are conducted, police are labeling the deaths “untimely.”

Police say there is no threat to the public.

The names of the victims were being withheld pending notification of family.
