·1 min read

A woman died and a man was wounded on Thursday in a central Florida shooting that has been deemed part of an attempted suicide pact, authorities said.

The pair entered the Hot Shot Shooting Range in Holly Hill, Florida, at 5:15 p.m. and rented a gun and firing lane, police said.

Once in the lane, the man shot the woman in the head, killing her, and then turned the gun on himself, police said.

The man shot himself in the head and was transported to a local hospital, and his condition remains to be updated, according to police.

The shooting appears to have been mutually agreed to by both parties as part of a suicide pact, police said.

Thursday's alleged suicide attempt was not the first in the gun range's history.
