[ARCHIVED] Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office Investigating Attempted Homicide/Suicide

The Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office is continuing its investigation into an attempted homicide and apparent suicide that occurred just before noon on Tuesday, Aug. 2, in the 20900 block of E. Euclid Drive.

Deputies were sent to that location at 11:35 a.m. on Aug. 2, when our communications center received a call from a woman who told the dispatcher that she had just killed her husband. She also indicated that she wanted to kill herself. While emergency responders were on their way to the home, a man got on the phone and told the dispatcher that his wife had shot him.

When deputies arrived at the home, they found a man in a bathroom, suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest. Deputies also found a woman in another room, deceased from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The man has been identified as 69-year-old Kevin Keator. At the time of this release, he remains hospitalized with what are believed to be non-life threatening injuries.

The woman has been identified as his wife, 83-year-old Kathryn Keator. It does not appear that anyone else was present in the home at the time of the incident.

Investigators will not be discussing a motive while the case is under investigation. The 911 call will also not be released at this time. There is no prior call history at this address involving these two individuals.
