A 53-year-old man died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound and a 50-year-old woman died of a gunshot wound, police said.
Police responded to a call of a man who threatened to harm himself at about 2 p.m. on Elepaio Road.

Kauai police sent a Special Services Team and Crisis Negotiators, who arrived at about 4 p.m.
Police entered at about 6:15 p.m. and found the pair dead.
An investigation is ongoing; an autopsy is pending, Kauai Police said in a news release.
