AUSTIN (KXAN) - The man police suspected of shooting a woman to death Sunday in Del Valle died later in the night at an Austin hospital, police said Monday.
The woman's body was found by Austin police in the 13000 block of Perconte Drive around 6:30 p.m. The death was ruled a homicide.
Neighbors said the woman had a daughter.
Police publicly identified the couple on Monday afternoon as Adriana Rugina, 29, and Terrelle Owens, 38. APD said the woman died of multiple gunshot wounds, and Owens died as the result of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Investigators said the couple had been in a dating relationship until recently. They have known each other for two years, according to police, and dated for the past year.
Police said the only person inside the residence at the time of the shooting was Rugina's 7-year-old daughter, who is traumatized from the event, but is holding up. She was not physically injured and is in the custody of an aunt.
The man with injuries was taken by STARFlight on Sunday night to University Medical Center Brackenridge where he later died. He is considered the only suspect by police.
"I just saw him on Thursday," said neighbor Juan Castelan. "I just went to his shop and he cut my hair. Everything was good. He was just talking to me like normal. I didn't think anything of it. It's shocking. It's surprising someone that I saw every other week and now he's seriously injured."
The incident occurred about two miles away from the northern end of the Circuit of The Americas track, but police said it had nothing to do with Sunday's Formula One race.
This is the 31st homicide of the year. It is the seventh murder related to domestic or dating violence this year.
