Culver — Police say a man fatally shot a teenage family friend before killing himself at his home in a small northern Indiana town.

Culver police say an autopsy performed Tuesday found that 16-year-old Stephen Suthard was shot multiple times by 44-year-old Michael Price. WSBT-TV and WNDU-TV report police say Price then killed himself with a single shot.

Police say the two were found shot by Price's wife when she arrived home late Nov. 28.

Investigators haven't given a possible motive for the shooting in the 1,300-person town about 30 miles south of South Bend.

Suthard was a sophomore at Culver Community High School.
