REDWOOD CITY (BCN)
A man survived after he shot his wife and then himself in Redwood City early Monday morning, according to police.
Police responded to the 1700 block of Carleton Court at 12:48 a.m. for a woman needing medical assistance.
They found the 72-year-old woman suffering from a gunshot wound to the head. They also found her 69-year-old husband, who was suffering from an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, police said.
The woman died at the scene, but her husband was transported to a hospital and is in critical condition.
Police do not yet know what motivated the shooting and are withholding the couple’s name until their family is notified.
Anyone with information about the incident has been asked to call Redwood City police Detective Dave Cirina at (650) 780-7607.
