Woman critically wounded, man dead in Rochester shootings 08 Mar 16

ROCHESTER, Minn. (AP) – Rochester police say a woman is critically wounded and a man dead after a domestic dispute.

Neighbors and a passer-by saw the woman collapse on the sidewalk Monday morning. Police Capt. John Sherwin says the woman was bleeding heavily. Witnesses also saw a man walking away from the home.

The woman in her 40s had been shot multiple times. She was taken by ambulance to a Rochester hospital and immediately went into surgery.

Authorities then found a man in his 70s in a pickup truck, dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot.

Sherwin would not confirm that the man had shot the woman, but says there is no risk to the public and no suspects are being sought.

Names of the victims have not been released.
