Police say a man shot his girlfriend Saturday prior to shooting himself in Cartersville.

Deputies responded to Young Street just before 1 p.m. after receiving a report of a woman being shot. When they arrived at the scene, they found that both a man and woman had been shot.

The woman was declared dead at the scene, while the man was flown to a hospital.

An initial investigation revealed that the pair lived together and were in a relationship, according to a spokesperson with the Bartow County Sheriff's Office. The police spokesperson says investigators believe the man shot himself after shooting the woman.

Their identities have not yet been released.

The condition of the man after he arrived at the hospital is also unknown.
