DeRuyter Central Schools and the DeRuyter Library are closed today following an armed stand-off that has left a husband and wife dead; the victims of an apparent murder-suicide.
State Police responded to the home of Edward and Michele Green around 10:30 Sunday night, after the couple’s son called saying he could not reach his parents.
When Troopers got to the scene, they heard gunshots; they set up a perimeter outside the home, officers waited for nearly seven hours. They entered the home around 4:30 this morning and found the couple’s bodies.
Police have not offered any additional details; the Green’s home is located near the DeRuyter School.
A spokesperson for the DeRuyter School District says Michele Green was a staff member in the district.
