Sheriff’s officials say a woman fatally shot her father at a residence in Sheboygan County and then killed herself.

SWAT officers were sent to a home in the Town of Lima about 2 p.m. Thursday after the 38-year-old woman told dispatchers she was armed, had killed someone and was suicidal.

Authorities on Friday said deputies and medical units responded to the home and found the body of 64-year-old Thomas Rank. He appeared to have died from a gunshot wound. Upon checking the residence further, deputies found the body of Rank’s daughter, Sarah Soucheck. Officials say she died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The investigation is ongoing.
