BONNE TERRE, Mo. ( – Two people are dead after a domestic disturbance ended in a shooting in St. Francois County Monday.

Investigators were called to the 9400 block of Woodleigh Drive near Bonne Terre around 6 a.m. for a call of gunshots.

The 71-year-old caller told 911 operators that she believed her grandson had shot her husband.

She heard two shots and then a third shot fired shortly after.

A second 911 call came in from a man who claimed he had been shot twice. During the call, the caller became unresponsive.

Officers found 66-year-old James Ray Lange dead in the living room of the room and  24-year-old Nicholas David Brown on a bedroom floor from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The incident is still under investigation by detectives with the St. Francois County Sheriff's Office.
