A man survived after he shot his wife and then himself in Redwood City early this morning, according to police. Police responded to the 1700 block of Carleton Court at 12:48 a.m. for a woman needing medical assistance. They found the 72-year-old woman suffering from a gunshot wound to the head. They also found her 69-year-old husband, who was suffering from an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, police said. The woman died at the scene, but her husband was transported to a hospital and is in critical condition. Police do not yet know what motivated the shooting and are withholding the couple’s name until their family is notified.
