Dearborn — An investigation continues in a suspected murder-suicide Sunday involving a Dearborn couple.

A 29-year-old woman was shot and killed by her 40-year-old estranged husband when she brought the children for visitation with their father around 11 a.m. in the 7500 block of Indiana, police said.

The husband pulled a gun from his waist band as he entered the woman’s vehicle and shot her, police said. He then turned the gun on himself, they said. It was being investigated as a murder-suicide, they said.

The names of the couple were not released Sunday pending notification of relatives.

The Dearborn Police Chief said in a news statement Sunday “our prayers go out to those involved. In times like these we count on (the) community to rally around the family and help with the healing process.”
