HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, N.J. (AP) – Authorities say an elderly man fatally shot his wife and brother-in-law before turning the gun on himself.

But it’s not clear what sparked the shootings, which occurred early Tuesday at two homes on a street in Hasbrouck Heights.

Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli says Angelo Talignani went to Anthony Gentile’s Burr Place home around 7:30 a.m., took two guns legally owned by Gentile and shot him in his bedroom.

Talignani then went back home and shot his wife, Antoinette, while she was lying in bed. Talignani then shot and killed himself.

All three people killed were in their 80s.

A home health aide, who lives with the Talignanis, heard the shots and called police from a neighbor's home. A family member found Gentile's body at his house.
