Pine Bluff police are investigating after a husband allegedly shot and killed his wife before shooting and injuring himself early Tuesday morning.

Police were called out to a residence in the 200 block of Sidney shortly before 1:30 a.m. after George Kelsey, 73, called 911 stating he had shot his wife Mickie Kelsey, 74. and then shot himself as well.

When officers arrived at the home, they were required to use force entry where they found George alive and talking on the couch with a single gunshot wound to the chest.

Authorities say Mickie was also in the living room with a gunshot wound. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

George was transported to a local hospital where he is undergoing surgery.

The motive for the shooting is unclear.
