Police continue to investigate shootings Saturday night that left a man dead and his wife critically injured.
Police and first responders were called to the 2300 block of Southwest 18th Street on a report of a woman with a head injury just before 11 p.m., according to a Lincoln Police Department news release.
When they arrived, two officers were taken inside by the woman's mother-in-law, who had called 911.
When the officers entered, Eric Garten, 58, shot and killed himself with a handgun, according to the release.
The injured woman, Rachel Garten, 54, was found with a gunshot wound to the head and was transported to a hospital with life-threatening injuries.
Chief Jeff Bliemeister identified the Gartens on Monday and said police have interviewed the mother-in-law, who lives with the couple, and investigators are looking into phone records in an attempt to determine whether both shootings were self-inflicted.
Police say no shots were fired by officers, and there is no ongoing threat to the public's safety.
A grand jury will likely review the case, as state law requires a grand jury investigation any time a person dies in custody or while being apprehended.
