COLLETON COUNTY, SC (AP) - South Carolina sheriff's deputies say a man shot and killed his wife and then wounded himself at their home.

The Post and Courier of Charleston reported that 57-year-old Rose Meyers of Lodge was found dead at her Colleton County home early Sunday.

Deputies say 51-year-old Eli Marc Meyers is hospitalized with a gunshot wound to the neck.

Chief Deputy Ted Stanfield says Eli Meyers called 911 about 5:15 a.m. Sunday saying he had shot his wife and shot himself.

Sheriff George Malone says investigators found two guns in the home but think both shots came from a single weapon. Investigators found a note at the scene but were working to determine who wrote it.
