TULSA, Oklahoma -

Tulsa police are investigating after an apparent murder-suicide in two different homes near 31st and Garnett.

Police say they were called to a home around 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday in regards to a man with a gunshot wound.

According to police, officers determined early in the investigation that the gunshot wound appeared to be self-inflicted and took place at a relative's house. 

Officers said David Wilson got into an argument with his wife, Kathy Wilson, and then he shot and killed her. Officers said David then went next door to his mother's home where he shot and killed himself in the garage.

Officers on the scene discovered that the man lived in the home next door to where police found him.

"The investigation led them next door where the male resided, they made entry for safety into that house, once inside they found the female also deceased from gunshot wounds," Capt. Jeff Edwards from the Tulsa Police Department said.

Police say there were other relatives inside of the home where the man was found dead.

Currently, it is unclear who made the 911 call.

There is a GoFundMe set up for Kathy Wilson.
