PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Authorities say a man fatally shot himself after he critically wounded his wife during a dispute at their Philadelphia home.

The victims were found around 11:30 p.m. Saturday after officers received reports of shots fired at the residence. The couple’s names have not been released and no other injuries were reported.

Authorities say the woman was found on the front porch, but further details on her injuries were not disclosed. She remained hospitalized Sunday in critical condition.

The man was found dead in the home from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Officers initially couldn’t enter the residence due to a strong odor of gas. But they were able to safely get inside a short time later after crews turned off the gas.

It’s not yet known what sparked the shootings.
