SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a man fatally shot his estranged wife and injured another person in Jurupa Valley and then drove about 15 miles to San Bernardino, where he killed himself.

The Los Angeles Times reports 43-year-old Simona Mateas died at a hospital after authorities discovered her lying in the driveway of a home on Saturday. Another person at the home was treated for non-life threatening injuries.

The victims identified the suspect as Simona Mateas' husband, Avram Mateas.

Several hours later, police in San Bernardino received a call reporting a suicide and found that the man who killed himself was Avram Mateas.

Investigators say Avram and Simona Mateas were going through a divorce.
