A man who fatally shot his wife Sunday morning in Beverly Hills before turning the gun on himself died from his injuries Tuesday, police confirmed.

The shooting took place on the 19000 block of Riverside — north of 13 Mile, east of Evergreen. Police were dispatched just before 10:30 a.m. Sunday on the report of a shooting, Beverly Hills Police Department said.

On arrival, they found a woman “in her 50s” fatally shot.  Police also found the woman’s husband, who was believed to be in the same age range, with a single gunshot wound to his head, but alive. Police said that day they believed the shooting was an attempted murder-suicide.

Emergency workers took the man to Royal Oak Beaumont Hospital. The man died Tuesday morning.

Police have not identified the couple. The Oakland County Medical Examiner did not immediately say whether it would be releasing the couple's names.
