MAGALIA, CA - A man came home Thursday around 12:46 p.m. to find his wife and son with gunshot wounds.

His wife, Kelli Leroux, 50, was dead inside of the family home on the 6400 block of Fir Haven Drive; his son, Travis Leroux, 25, was shot, but still alive.

Butte County sheriff's Det. Jason Hail said when deputies and medics arrived at the scene, they worked on Travis Leroux, but  he died of his wounds in the home.

Initial reports from the scene provided evidence of a possible murder-suicide. Hail said there will be no final conclusion until after the autopsy and investigation is completed.

Anyone with information about the case was urged to call the Butte County Sheriff's Office at (530) 538-7671.
