(WHDH) — Three people are dead following a dispute over shoveling snow dumped by a major winter storm that slammed the Northeast on Monday.

Officers responding to the area of West Bergh Street in Plains Township, Pennsylvania, around 9:30 a.m. found three people who died in an apparent double murder-suicide, WNEP-TV reported.

Investigators say a neighborhood resident fatally shot a man and his wife in the street before turning the gun on himself inside his home.

The deadly incident was reportedly precipitated by a disagreement about snow removal.

The names of those involved have not been released.

No additional information was immediately available.

An investigation remains ongoing.
