(West Des Moines, IA) -- West Des Moines Police are investigating an attempted murder suicide near 90th Street and Oxford Drive.

Police responded to a call from a woman Monday, January 16th at 3:35 p.m., saying she had been shot in the head by her partner.

"When officers arrived at the residence, they located an injured female, with a gunshot wound to her head," said Sergeant Jason Heintz.

The woman was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.

"They also located a deceased male in front of the residence, with what appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound," said Heintz. "The investigation is leading the detectives to believe that this was an attempted murder at the scene, before the male turned the weapon on himself."

West Des Moines Police are expected to release more information Tuesday, January 17th.
