BATON ROUGE - Police said a shooting in Baton Rouge this afternoon appears to be a suicide and attempted murder.

Cpl. L'Jean McKneely with Baton Rouge Police said they were called to the 4000 block of Tuscarora Street around 2:20 p.m. today. A man at the scene was found dead, and a woman there was taken to a local hospital with critical injuries.

McKneely said the woman's father tried calling her all morning with no success, and went by the house to check on her. He told police when he got there he saw them lying in a bed with gunshot wounds, and kicked in the door to the home before calling police.

Both victims were found with gunshot wounds to the head. McKneely said it appeared that the boyfriend shot the woman in the head before shooting himself.
