The Thurston County Sheriff's Office is investigating a double fatal shooting.
The Sheriff's Office said driving down the road on 56th Ave NE found two people lying on the ground - both had gunshot wounds.
Responding officers found a woman dead and a man injured.
The man died en route to the hospital.
A gun was found at the scene.
The couple has not been positively identified but it appears that they are a 39-year-old woman and a 51-year-old man from Lakewood.
Lt. Cliff Ziesemer said the coroner will investigate but it appeared their deaths may have been a murder-suicide.
The gun was right next to the bodies and it appears they are husband and wife, said Ziesemer.
The shooting happened about 10 miles north of Olympia.
