Suffolk County police are investigating a domestic murder-suicide involving a husband and wife in Stony Brook, police said.
Police responded to a Pembrook Drive home about 6:45 p.m. after a family member who discovered the bodies called 911, police said in a news release Sunday night.

The man called his son and said he had killed his wife and the family dog at their home before he killed himself, a high-ranking law enforcement official said.
The couple was pronounced dead at their home by a physician assistant from the Office of the Suffolk County Medical Examiner, the release stated.
