Alameda, CA: Man, woman in apparent murder-suicide in Alameda

ALAMEDA, Calif. -- Police say a man and a woman were found in an Alameda home in what appears to be a murder-suicide.

Officers responded to a report of shots fired around 6:30 p.m. Monday and found a 30-year-old woman and a 36-year-old man with gunshots wounds.

Lt. Sean Lynch says the woman was pronounced dead at the scene. The man was taken to the hospital, where he died early Tuesday.

Lynch says the shooting is under investigation, but it appears that the man shot the woman, whom he once dated, before turning the gun on himself.

The handgun used in the shooting was found at the scene and registered to the man.
