Police: Domestic dispute led to shooting that killed 2

DODGE CITY, Kan. (AP) — Dodge City police say longstanding domestic issues likely led a man to shoot and kill two people before shooting himself.

Police Chief Craig Mellecker says 55-year-old Jesus Ochoa-Morales was shot in a store’s parking lot Sunday and died at a hospital. About 10 minutes later, 48-year-old Maria Monreal was abducted at gunpoint from the Wal-Mart where she worked.

Mellecker says when officers approached the suspect’s vehicle, he shot Monreal in the head and then shot himself. Monreal died Sunday.

Police say the suspect, 58-year-old Isaias Monreal, was flown to a Wichita hospital, where he died Tuesday.

All those involved lived in Dodge City.
