Police in Detroit are investigating an attempted murder-suicide after a woman was shot and killed by her boyfriend -- who also shot himself, but survived.

It happened just after 4 a.m. Thursday at a home on Three Mile Drive, near Whittier.

A woman in her 50s was dead at the scene. The suspect, 56 years old, was in critical condition after shooting himself. WWJ's Charlie Langton reported the two were dating.

Investigators are trying to determine the circumstances that led up to the shooting.
