According to call details, a witness told dispatchers that he had gone outside to smoke and returned to find the woman dead.
The woman, who was actually in critical condition, was taken by ambulance to a hospital and was pronounced dead at about 7:15 a.m., said homicide Sgt. Joe Loughman.
Police later found the suspected shooter in Watauga. He was taken to a hospital with a self-inflicted gunshot wound and was in extremely critical condition Friday, Loughman said.
Homicide detectives continued to investigate.
