Police say a man called 911 to say he accidentally shot his wife and the family cat in their Staten Island home then apparently turned the gun on himself. Fifty-one-year-old Karan Pizon was found Thursday on the living room floor of the home in the duplex. 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. A handgun was near his body.

The couple have no children. They lived in the middle-class enclave of Bulls Head on Staten Island's West Shore.

Police are investigating what led to the deaths.
