A 39-year-old Lake in the Hills man fatally shot a female acquaintance and minutes later shot himself in front of police officers last night following a domestic quarrel in northwest suburban Carpentersville, police said.
, whose last known address was on Tecumseh Drive in Lake in the Hills, was taken to Sherman Hospital, where he was pronounced dead last night, according to a police spokeswoman.
Police were called to the 0-100 block of Pueblo Road at 9:39 p.m. for a report of a man with a gun and a domestic disturbance, she said.
Officers discovered a 39-year-old woman shot twice and dead on the scene, she said.
As police were investigating this, at 10 p.m. a second call came in regarding an armed man, she said.
“The subject who shot this woman was at a friend’s home in the 1500 block of Amarillo Drive,’’ she said.
Police found Rodriguez in the front yard of the home with a gun. “As they tried to talk to him, he shot himself one time,’’ the spokeswoman said.
The woman’s name was not being released Saturday, pending notification of family members, according to the spokeswoman.
The Kane County coroner’s office is handling both deaths, but a representative was not immediately available.
