Rogers County Sheriff Scott Walton said his office is investigating a murder-suicide that happened overnight.

He said deputies were dispatched to an address near Chelsea.

"In the middle of the night we got a call, around 3 a.m., that a man had shot his wife. He called their kids and said what he'd done and that he was going to kill himself," Walton said. "They called neighbors and asked them to speak to him. While the neighbor attempted to make contact he had a gun in his hand. He told the neighbor what he was going to do, then walked inside and shot himself."

Additional details and the names of those involved are not being released at this time.
