WILMINGTON, Del (CBS) — Wilmington police have identified an elderly couple that was killed in a shooting at a nursing home over the weekend. Police also confirmed the shooting was a murder-suicide.

The incident happened shortly after 1 p.m. at ManorCare Health Services-Wilmington on Saturday.

Police identified the victims Monday as 82-year-old Louis M. Camerota and his wife, 79-year-old Gail F. Camerota.
