9-1-1: Man Says He Shot His Wife And Cat, Then Shoots Self

Police say a New York City man called them to claim he had accidentally shot his wife and their cat in their home and then he apparently shot himself.

Fifty-one-year-old Karen Pizon was found shot in the torso Thursday on the living room floor of the single-family home in Staten Island. She was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Her husband, 51-year-old John Pizon, was found in a bedroom with a gunshot wound to his head. He was dead. A handgun was near his body.

The couple lived in a duplex in the middle-class neighborhood Bulls Head, named for a turn-of-the-century tavern that used to be at the area's main intersection. They had no children.

Police are investigating what led to the deaths.
