CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - Cedar Rapids police have released the name of two people killed in a shooting at an apartment complex parking lot.

Police on Monday said 52-year-old LuElla Koopman died Friday when she was shot by 54-year-old Dennis Lee Koopman, who then killed himself.

The Koopmans were married, but investigators believe they were in the process of a divorce.

Police say Dennis Koopman either followed his wife to the residence or waited for her arrival. Investigators say he then blocked in her vehicle before getting out of his vehicle, yelling something and opening fire with a long gun.

LuElla Koopman was struck multiple times and died.

Her husband then used the long gun to kill himself.
