• Man, teenage girl fatally shot in apparent murder-suicide

    TOBYHANNA, Pa. (AP) - Authorities say the shooting deaths of a 63-year-old man and a 16-year-old girl inside a Pennsylvania home appear to be a murder-suicide.

    The bodies were found around 8:30 p.m. Friday when Pocono Mountain Regional police went to the home in Tobyhanna. Authorities say Freddie Simmons and the girl lived in the residence with others, but it wasn't immediately clear if the two were related.

    Police found a note allegedly written by Simmons, saying he was going to kill himself and take the girl with him. Their bodies were found in the same room.

    The teen had been shot multiple times while Simmons had a single gunshot wound to the head.

    The girl's name has not been released.

    No other injuries were reported.
