"SUAWNEE, GA — A standoff in Suwanee between police and a man alleged to have shot two women, killing one, ended Monday afternoon when the suspect shot himself, authorities said.
"The condition of the suspect, 29-year-old Shuaib Omar, was unknown Monday evening but Suwanee police [said] he was in `bad shape` at an area hospital. Earlier, police incorrectly told reporters he was dead.
"One of the two women Omar shot in an apparent domestic dispute at an Auburn apartment died after being transported to Gwinnett Medical Center, Auburn Police Chief Paul Nadeau said. The other victim was in critical condition at the hospital, he said.
"The women's names were withheld pending notification of family members.
"Police said one of the victims was Omar's girlfriend.
"After the shooting, Omar fled from the apartment, at 186 Parks Mill Road, to his home on Scales Road in Suwanee, where he told SWAT units he was going to kill himself, police said."
