GAITHERSBURG, Md. (AP) — Montgomery County police say a man shot his girlfriend and then turned the gun on himself. 

Police say the 54-year-old woman pretended to be dead after she was shot in the arm at an apartment in the 400-block of North Summit Avenue on Saturday morning. Then, police say the 42-year-old man fatally shot himself. 

The woman fled the home and called police. The man was pronounced dead on the scene. The woman was taken to Suburban Hospital with life-threatening injuries, but is expected to survive.
