Police say a man shot his wife in Randallstown on Friday morning before turning the gun on himself in Northwest Baltimore.
Baltimore County police said the Randallstown shooting occurred just before 7 a.m. in the 9600 block of Axehead Court.
Police said that the man, who was married to the woman but had been staying somewhere else for the past several weeks, shot her at least once in the upper body during an "interaction" in front of the home.
The suspect fled the scene, and officers later found his vehicle in Baltimore City. He was inside the vehicle suffering from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, police said. City police said he was found in the 3700 block of Liberty Heights Ave., in the Callaway-Garrison neighborhood.
The woman's injuries were described as not life-threatening; the man was transported to Sinai Hospital and city police said he was in critical condition.
Police did not identify them.
