Detectives say it appears the woman shot the man, then took her own life.

“I’m shocked,” said neighbor Boyd Roby.

Neighbors tell News 9 the victim had gotten divorced a couple years ago and lived alone.

“Always out in the street when you saw him, happy, friendly, smiling,” said Roby. “Good guy, good neighbor.”

Police have not released the names of the two people involved or their relation to each other.
