About the Video: Police believe the shooting incident this morning at the Sandpiper Apartments near Montgomery and Jefferson was a murder-suicide.
APD spokeswoman Trish Hoffman tells ABQJournal.com that a man shot his wife or girlfriend several times either inside an apartment at the complex, just outside it or both, then shot himself in the parking lot shortly before officers arrived.
The couple had a lengthy history of domestic violence, Hoffman said, and police had been to the apartment numerous times in the past.
Detectives are interviewing witnesses and working to notify next of kin.
