A man in his 80s apparently shot and killed his wife Wednesday at their home in Pacoima and then shot and critically wounded himself, police said.

The shooting was reported about 10:30 a.m. in the 12800 block of Wingo Street, said Los Angeles Police Department Officer Tony Im.

A woman in her 80s died at the scene, said LAPD Officer Irma Mota. Her name was withheld, pending notification of her next of kin. The man in his 80s was taken to a hospital in critical condition, Mota said.

LAPD Detective Steve Castro said a motive for the shooting was not known.

Few other details were available.

There was no disclosure about the couple’s physical health, how long the two had been married or their identities.
