Woman shot by live-in boyfriend in Amherst murder-suicide

A woman and her live-in boyfriend were found dead Sunday afternoon in an Amherst home after an apparent murder-suicide, police said.

Family members of the 55-year-old woman went to the Ransom Oaks Drive home about 1 p.m. Sunday to check on the woman and discovered the bodies, police said. The 53-year-old man apparently shot the woman before turning the gun on himself, police said. Their names were not released, pending notification of both families.

Amherst police detectives said the investigation is continuing.
