The Evansville Police Department is investigating a potential murder-suicide.

According to EPD Sgt. Anna Gray, officers responded to a shots-fired call in the 1000 block of West Iowa Street just after 6 p.m. on Saturday that resulted in the death of a woman in her 30s.

According to a release from EPD, the suspect, a man, shot the woman before shooting himself. When officers arrived on the scene, both the man and the woman were found dead.

The police report states officers had just been at the woman's home a few hours prior, investigating a criminal mischief complaint against her ex-boyfriend.

But EPD says the ex-boyfriend left before they arrived, and told the woman she should get a protective order against him.

EPD does not say whether this incident from a few hours prior is tied to the woman's death or if the ex-boyfriend is the suspect in the shooting.

It was another cool, though overall pleasant day across the Tri-State - after only seeing temperatures dive as low as 22° early this morning, peak temperatures ended up climbing a few degrees higher than Thursday's; that being said, Evansville’s high temperature of 27° Was still 15° below average for this time of the year. As for the evening ahead, temperatures will gradually fall for 23° around dinner time back down to 19° by10 PM. A weak northerly wind flow most of the night paired with our crystal clear skies will cause temperatures to of fall back down into the mid to low teens once again - Evansville's anticipated low temperature of 12° will mark or coolest since the morning of January 7th.
