LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — A woman was hospitalized in critical condition Tuesday, a day after she was shot outside a Subaru plant in northwest Indiana where the suspected gunman was later found dead, police said.

Officers who were called Monday afternoon to Subaru of Indiana Automotive about a reported shooting found Mindy L. Donovan, 36, of Lafayette in the parking with a gunshot wound to her head, said Lt. Justin Hartman of the Lafayette Police Department.

Donovan was later flown by helicopter to an Indianapolis hospital where she was in critical condition Tuesday, Hartman said in a news release.

After finding Donovan wounded, officers discovered the shooting suspect dead near a pond on the east side of the automotive plant’s property about 60 miles (96 kilometers) north of Indianapolis.

Hartman said the man, whose name has not been released, died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Hartman told WLFI-TV that the suspect and Donovan had previously been in a relationship and both were employees at the plant.
