    State police at the scene of a double fatal shooting in Temple, Maine, on Jan. 9, 2018.

    Maine state police say they are investigating the discovery of the bodies of a husband and wife who appear to have been shot inside their home. 

    Police say the bodies of 60-year-old Thomas Masse and 59-year-old Michelle Masse were found on Tuesday afternoon in the small town of Temple, about 40 miles northwest of Augusta.

    Police say they were called to the home on Tuesday morning after receiving a 911 call from a man at the home who was threatening to shoot himself. They say efforts by a tactical team and negotiators to communicate with the couple were not successful. Members of the tactical team discovered the bodies when they entered the home at about 12:30 p.m. 

    State police detectives are now attempting to determine the circumstances of the deaths.
