Posted: Updated:
MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Police say two people were transported to a local hospital Tuesday afternoon after an argument between a husband and wife turned violent. One person has since died.

Authorities responded to the 3600 block of Carriage Oaks Court in Montgomery on Thursday afternoon on the call of a subject shot.

The caller advised police that the suspect was still on the scene.

When authorities arrived at the residence they found not one, but two people, a 39-year-old husband and his 37-year-old wife, suffering from life-threatening gunshot wounds.

A preliminary investigation indicates that an argument escalated to the shooting. Police believe the husband shot his wife. He then turned the gun on himself once he knew police had been called to the scene.

Authorities say the male was later pronounced dead at the hospital. MPD has launched a death investigation into the incident. At this time, the wife is still listed in critical condition. 

Police ask individuals with knowledge of this shooting to call CrimeStoppers at 215-STOP, Secret Witness at 262-4000, or the Montgomery Police Department at 625-2831.
