POMPANO BEACH, Fla. — Authorities say a man killed himself after fatally shooting his girlfriend while their 3-year-old son was nearby.
The woman was shot shortly before 8 p.m. Tuesday during what Broward Sheriff's officials described as a domestic dispute.
Deputies say the man left the apartment with the couple's son. He left the child with his grandparents in Lauderdale Lakes, a suburb of Fort Lauderdale, before shooting himself to death in his vehicle.
The identities of the man and woman have not been released.
