PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) - Police have identified an Arizona woman who was shot and killed while her 12-year-old daughter was home.

Peoria Police say 49-year-old Tammy Mattison was shot in the head in her apartment Friday. Officer Brandon Sheffert says the woman’s daughter and neighbor called 911 and reported that the girl’s father may have shot the woman.

Sheffert says the 53-year-old father was found later with a gunshot wound to the head in a separate apartment he lived in at the same complex. Police reports say the couple were living in separate apartments because of recent relationship issues.

The father was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries and was still alive as of Saturday afternoon.

Sheffert says the child is with family.
