Police say a man shot and killed a woman in Hayward before taking his own life over the weekend.

Responding to a report of gunshot victims Saturday shortly before 6:30 p.m., officers found the injured couple in the front seat of a vehicle in the 3000 block of West Winton Avenue, Hayward police said Sunday.

A 31-year-old woman in the front passenger seat was pronounced dead at the scene and a 36-year-old man was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said.

Police recovered a handgun at the scene and witnesses reported hearing an argument in the vehicle before the gunfire.

Police say they believe the man shot the woman before killing himself, and they are investigating the relationship between the two. The identities of the victims are being withheld pending notification of next of kin.
