SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - Authorities say the suspect in the shooting death of a Springfield woman apparently shot and wounded himself before his arrest.

Police said in a news release that someone called 911 around 4:30 p.m. Wednesday to report that a person had been shot at a home. After a short standoff, the suspect exited the home. Police then found the body of 31-year-old Kristi Spurlock inside.

The release said the suspect was taken to a hospital with injuries that were described as serious but not life threatening.

No charges were immediately filed, but an investigation into the shooting is ongoing. Anyone with information is urged to call authorities.
