Detroit police are investigating a double shooting on the city's east side Wednesday night that left one woman dead and a man in critical condition.

The double shooting took place about 10:52 p.m. Wednesday on the 20000 block of Schoenherr, said Officer Holly Lowe, a Detroit Police Department spokeswoman. That's off East State Fair.

Police got a 911 call from a man saying that he had "accidentally" shot the woman victim, who is 30, in her head. 

When officers arrived, though, they found the male caller, 34, shot in his head as well.

The woman died at the scene. The man was transported to an area hospital, and is listed in critical condition at last report.
