A 30-year-old man and a 31-year-old woman are dead after Mobile police say the man shot her during an argument early Sunday morning and then killed himself.

On Sunday around 12:52 a.m., police officers got a call about a domestic-related shooting at the 1000 block of Burdette Drive in south Mobile near I-10, per a Mobile Police Department statement. When officers arrived on the scene, they found a woman with multiple gunshot wounds. She was taken to the hospital, where she died of her injuries.

While at the scene, officers got another call about shots fired a few blocks away, at the 1000 block of Marengo Drive. There, they found a man who appeared to have died after shooting himself.

“Preliminary findings indicate that the female victim was shot during a verbal altercation with the male,” the police department said in a statement.

Mobile police are investigating what happened and say they will release the two individuals’ names after notifying their families.

Authorities are asking that anyone who has information about the case to contact the police department at (251) 208-7211.
