An elderly woman was shot to death inside her home in Pacoima Wednesday morning, and police said her 86-year-old husband then tried to kill himself.
The woman, 73, was found dead of a gunshot wound around 10:30 a.m. in the 12800 block of Wingo Street, according to the LAPD.
The husband was taken from the scene in grave condition and a handgun was found nearby.
"He's still alive but he's not expected to survive," said detective Steve Castro.
Police had been called to the home before, and Castro said investigators were trying to figure out the motive.
