Police in both Summit and Wayne Counties believe they are investigating a murder suicide.

It began around 3:30 a.m. Tuesday when a Doylestown police officer noticed a driver go through a red light on Portage Street.

The officer tried to stop the driver but he put on his hazards and started swerving. He eventually stopped on the tree lawn on the opposite side of the road.

When the officer approached the car, she saw the man slumped over with a gun on his lap.

She then noticed the gunshot wound to the head and called EMS.

The victim died at the hospital.

Doylestown then called Springfield Township so they could notify the next of kin, his wife.

Officers there responded to a home on Moonlight Drive and found the woman dead inside.

Her death is a suspected homicide.

Her cause of death has not been released.
