WEST CHESTER, Pa. (AP) — Police say a man is dead and a woman injured in a shooting in a suburban Philadelphia home.

Capt. Joe Gleason of West Goshen police tells the Daily Local News of West Chester that a preliminary investigation indicates that a domestic dispute appears to have erupted at about 5:30 a.m. Monday.

Police said 53-year-old Michael Takacs died and his 37-year-old wife Mary Takacs was injured.

Police said he had moved out of the home about two months ago and was living in a nearby apartment.
