Woman Killed, Man Wounded in Shooting at Baldwin Park Meat Market

A man gunned down his wife at a Baldwin Park meat market, then turned the gun on himself but survived, police said.

The murder-suicide attempt was reported about 8:30 a.m. Wednesday at the market in the 13000 block of Los Angeles Street, which was open for business at the time, said Lt. Chris Kubbery of the Baldwin Park Police Department.

Sheriff's officials said the man shot her once in the forehead, but then failed to kill himself with a shot to his upper body. He was taken to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center, where he was undergoing surgery for his wounds.

No one else was injured.

Detectives said the man had a restraining order against the woman, who leaves behind four children.

The couple, who is from El Monte, was not identified.
