According to authorities, Joseph Manuel Gomez shot and killed ex-girlfriend Tatiana Pintilie and himself Monday.

It happened at the Park Layne Towers at 400 block Golden Isle Drive about 7:30 p.m. Monday.

When police arrived, they found Pintilie who had been shot in the shoulder. She was rushed to Memorial Regional Hospital, where she died.
