      Woman shot and killed in Traverse City

      A 33-year-old male suspect was taken to Munson for treatment and questioning.

      A 28-year-old woman was shot and killed in Traverse City Tuesday night.

      The shooting happened around 10:30pm at an apartment on the corner of 3 Mile Road and Aero Park Drive.

      Authorities said a 33-year-old male suspect also sustained a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his hand.

      Police said the suspect called 9-1-1 to report he had tried to commit suicide, but missed, shooting the victim. When authorities arrived, the man came outside with his gun, but went back in the house and tried to flee out the back.

      Another shot was fired. Police were then able to apprehend the man.

      He was taken to Munson Medical Center where he is undergoing surgery. Police said they will question the suspect after he is treated.

      Crime scene investigators are going over the scene.

      The investigation is on-going.
