Man dead, woman hospitalized following domestic fight in Phoenix – The Arizona Republic

The Phoenix Police Department said a man shot his wife and then himself during a domestic fight on Saturday night at a residence near 67th Avenue and Baseline Road in Phoenix.
Police said they received a call from a minor who reported his father shot his mother just before 10:30 p.m. Officers identified the suspect as John Hack, 54.
Police found a woman with multiple gunshot wounds inside a car near the residence and took her to the hospital.
The woman told police her husband shot her while inside their home. She was able to get in the car and drive away as Hack continued to shoot at her, she told police.
The minor was found unharmed outside the home, police said.
Officers surrounded the house and tried to communicate with Hack for several hours but did not get a response. Police then entered the house after obtaining a search warrant and found Hack dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said.
Detectives were investigating what led up to the shooting.
The woman remains at the hospital and the child is in a safe location, police said.
