Police: 2 dead in apparent murder-suicide on Buffalo street; shooting in Allentown section


BUFFALO, New York — Police in Buffalo say a couple is dead in an apparent murder-suicide in the city's Allentown neighborhood.

Commissioner Daniel Derenda says a man shot a woman around 7:40 a.m. Tuesday and then took his own life. The bodies were lying in the street when officers arrived on the scene.

Derenda says police were called to the couple's address Monday night to investigate a report of domestic violence, but the man was gone when officers arrived.

Their names have not been released.

The shooting occurred on College Street in Allentown, Buffalo's popular arts and entertainment district.
