OGDEN, Utah — A man shot himself and is now in critical condition after shooting and killing his ex-girlfriend, according to Ogden Police.

The suspect, whose name was not released, confronted the victim in the parking lot of a Smith’s grocery store at 1485 Harrison Blvd. Saturday afternoon.

Around 1:15 p.m., he shot and killed the 41-year-old woman (whose name was also not released) then fled the area, police say.

The man was later located in a front yard a few miles away on the 900 block of Maple Street. Neither police nor the residents of that home knew why he went there.

The suspect was armed with a handgun and refused officers’ commands to surrender, and a SWAT team was called in. Nearby residents were evacuated from their homes.
