In another incident, a woman was shot by her ex-boyfriend at her home in Baltimore, Maryland. The incident took place in the 7200 block of Chippenham Place.

Baltimore County Police detectives said they arrived at a scene after receiving a report of gunfire at a Milford Mill apartment building Friday morning. When authorities arrived, they found Marlen Xioma Maldonado-Caceres, 30, laying on the ground shot. She later died at an area hospital.

Detectives determined that Maldonado-Caceres was shot by her ex-boyfriend, who was found a short distance away sitting in a vehicle, suffering from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

In a murder-suicide case in New York last month, a 63-year-old man killed his wife in northern Westchester County. Troopers were sent to a residence for an alarm activation on Titicus Road in North Salem. When authorities arrived at the scene they found the bodies of two people. The two people dead were identified as Barry Naderman, 63, and Peggy Naderman, 64.

Police said that Barry shot his wife with a .22 caliber rifle before turning it on him.

An initial investigation conducted by the Westchester County Medical Examiner's Office revealed the deaths were a result of a murder-suicide, police said, adding that it was not immediately clear what the motivation might have been.
