Woman Shot Dead, Man Apparently Tries to Kill Self in Lower Manhattan: Police

A 56-year-old woman was found dead with a gunshot wound to the chest and a 62-year-old man discovered barely alive with an apparent self-inflicted shot to the head in lower Manhattan early Wednesday, authorities say. 

The man was taken to the hospital alive after the 8 a.m. shooting at Cooper Square, but authorities say he is not expected to survive. Police didn't say how the man and woman were connected, and their identities were not released.  

Photos posted to social media showed a number of emergency vehicles at the scene. Authorities said it was believed to be an isolated incident, but their investigation is ongoing.
