A central California woman was fatally shot Saturday morning by
her daughters father less than a day after filing a
restraining order against him before the man turned the gun on
himself, police said.
The 26-year-old woman was shot and killed inside her Fresno home
by the suspect, who was later only identified as a 40-year-old
man, The Fresno Bee reported, citing police. The man and the
woman had a 1-year-old daughter together, the report said. The
child was not home at the time of the shooting, according to

The man fled the home and shot himself in front of officers at
an intersection around 10 a.m., according to The Bee. He later
died from his injury at a local medical center, the report said.
It was apparent that this individual had been pursuing her in
some form or fashion and obviously today that was the
unfortunate outcome, Chief Jerry Dyer told reporters.
Police said a Fresno court judge had granted the woman a
restraining order Friday against the man. The man was in court
when the order was granted, police said. Dyer said investigators
believe the apparent murder-suicide may have stemmed from the
court order. Neither of their identities was released.
