Licking County Sheriff's deputies say a man and a woman were found dead overnight in a home north of Pataskala in what they are calling an apparent murder-suicide.

The names of the deceased have not been released. Deputies say they went to the home on Reussner Road to conduct a welfare check. Deputies say someone inside then opened fire and held authorities at bay for several hours.
