Woman survives attempted murder-suicide in Valrico

A Hillsborough County man is dead and a woman is injured after an attempted murder-suicide in Valrico, deputies say.

According to the sheriff's office, the man, who investigators would only say was in his 50s, tried to kill the woman, who is in her 30s, at a home on Siena Way. The woman survived, but the man killed himself.

The woman was rushed to the hospital, though her condition was not immediately clear.

Investigators say a domestic dispute call was reported at the house last year, but no other incidents were on record. They said that dispute was "all verbal" and not physically violent.

The relationship between the man and the woman is unknown, but deputies say it was possibly romantic.
