LAND O’LAKES — A 75-year-old man shot his wife and then turned the gun on himself and committed suicide Monday night in Lake Padgett Mobile Home Village, according to the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office.

The shooting was reported at 10:07 p.m.

Glenn Meyer died at the scene of the shooting, a residence on the 2900 block of Jabud Lane inside the walled trailer park, deputies said.

His wife, Michele Meyer, 74, suffered a gunshot wound to the head. She was flown to a local hospital for emergency medical treatment and was expected to survive.

Deputies believe that Meyer shot his wife with a handgun because she was thinking about leaving him and moving out of their home.

The Sheriff’s Office did not release any other details about the incident.
