FORT WASHINGTON, Md. (AP) — Prince George’s County Police say a man shot and killed his ex-wife in the parking lot of her apartment and then killed himself.

It happened early Wednesday in Fort Washington. Police say 32-year-old Michelle Miranda-Fletcher arrived at her home after celebrating her birthday. Officers say her ex-husband, 32-year-old Lester Lee Fletcher Jr., had been waiting for her and drove up to her car.

Police say witnesses heard Fletcher arguing with his ex-wife, and then saw him shoot her several times. Officers say Fletcher then shot himself.

Both were pronounced dead at the scene.
