The Evansville Police Department is investigating a potential murder-suicide.
According to EPD Sgt. Anna Gray, officers responded to a shots-fired call in the 1000 block of West Iowa Street just after 6 p.m. on Saturday that resulted in the death of a woman in her 30s.
According to a release from EPD, the suspect, a man, shot the woman before shooting himself. When officers arrived on the scene, both the man and the woman were found dead.
The police report states officers had just been at the woman's home a few hours prior, investigating a criminal mischief complaint against her ex-boyfriend.
But EPD says the ex-boyfriend left before they arrived, and told the woman she should get a protective order against him.
EPD does not say whether this incident from a few hours prior is tied to the woman's death or if the ex-boyfriend is the suspect in the shooting.
