In an apparent murder-suicide in Tennessee, a woman was killed by her estranged husband who then shot himself. Local police said the incident took place Friday in Hermitage, a neighborhood in Nashville.

Beverly McPherson, 42, was killed during the incident that took place at her mother’s home on Bonnaspring Drive, Metropolitan Nashville Police Department said. McPherson's estranged husband, 39-year-old Antwaund Cartwright, came to the home and argued with the woman before going outside to get a shotgun.

Investigators said that Cartwright fatally shot McPherson in the living room before killing himself. There were three other people in the house at the time of the incident but were unhurt.

Authorities are investigating the incident and other details are yet to be revealed.

Last week, a 45-year-old man shot his wife before turning the gun on himself in Kansas City, Missouri. The two dead were identified as Damone Williams and 48-year-old Jamie Williams.

Police arrived at the scene following calls of a disturbance in the area of Northeast 91st Terrace just east of Flintlock Road. The caller said that the disturbance began outside of a home that then moved inside the residence. Neighbors told police that once the disturbance moved inside, gunshots were heard.

Police found the two people dead after a standoff that began Monday morning. Police were able to get a search warrant and entered the home in the afternoon. Both the people were pronounced dead at the scene.
