A man is dead and a woman is left fighting for her life after what police say was a murder-suicide attempt Sunday night in east Charlotte.

Authorities did not release the name of the victim or the alleged shooter.

The incident happened in the Sharon Pointe Apartments in the 5600 block of Sharon Pointe Road. Police were called to the location just before 8 p.m. Sunday.

When officers arrived, they found a male and female inside an apartment. Both had been shot. The male was pronounced dead at the scene. The female was rushed to Carolinas Medical Center in critical condition.

Based on the initial investigation, police believe the man shot the woman then turned the gun on himself following a domestic dispute. It was the third homicide reported by police over the weekend.

Anyone with information is asked to call 704-432-TIPS and speak directly to a homicide detective, or call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
