Police: man dies, woman injured in Ohio shooting

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Police say a man died and a woman was severely injured in a shooting at a southwest Ohio home.

Dayton police Lt. Wendy Stiver (STEYE'- vur) says the preliminary investigation indicates the man may have shot the woman and turned the gun on himself. But she says the investigation was continuing.

Stiver says officers went to the home Saturday on a welfare check and called for reinforcements after hearing gunshots inside.

Stiver says police eventually entered the home when they couldn't contact anyone inside. She says police found the man dead and the woman severely injured from at least one gunshot wound.

Police didn't immediately release the identities or relationship of the two.

A semi-automatic handgun was found at the scene.

Police said the woman was hospitalized in critical condition.
