MARION, Iowa (AP) - Police are investigating an apparent homicide in a grocery store parking lot in eastern Iowa.

The Marion Police Department says a woman who appears to be in her late 20s was killed Tuesday outside a Hy-Vee. Her identity and the nature of her death haven’t yet been released.

Chief Harry Daugherty says a man suspected of killing the woman has been taken into custody and was taken to the hospital for treatment of self-inflivted wounds.

Daugherty tells KCRG-TV (https://bit.ly/1DKrX2t ) the store remained open as authorities investigated the scene, though a large area of the parking lot was taped off.

Daugherty says the public is not at risk. No further information has been released.
