Sheriff’s detectives Thursday were investigating an attempted murder-suicide in which a man shot and seriously wounded a woman and then turned the gun on himself.

Deputies were called about 7 p.m. Wednesday to 11226 Stamy Road near La Mirada Boulevard in the unincorporated South Whittier area for a report about an attempted murder and suicide, said Sgt. Marcelo Ortega of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Ortega said a man pointed a gun at a woman during a domestic dispute at the house and shot her in the neck and hip area, then shot himself.

The woman was taken to a hospital in serious condition, Ortega said. The man died at the scene. Their names have not been released.

Ortega did not have an update on the woman’s condition Thursday.
