1 dead, 1 hurt in shooting in Union
UNION (AP) - A 34-year-old man was found dead in the eastern Missouri town of Union, and authorities believe he shot a woman before turning the gun on himself.
Mitchell Ham died Tuesday morning of what police call an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. The unidentified woman was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries.
The shooting happened at about 2 a.m. at a home in Union, a Franklin County town about 50 miles southwest of St. Louis.
Police said Ham and the woman were involved in a domestic dispute before the shooting.
