Juneau police say a man who shot a woman Friday night before shooting himself as part of a failed murder-suicide is dead.
The 42-year-old man has not been identified yet.
The woman, also 42-years old, suffered a gunshot wound to her abdomen, but police say her injury is not life-threatening.
The woman placed a 911 call about 11 o’clock Friday night to report the shooting inside the residence at the 9000 block of Stephen Richards Memorial Drive.
An autopsy of the man has been requested and the investigation continues.
