CODY, Wyo. (AP) — Police in Cody say a man fatally shot himself after shooting a woman in the head.

The 44-year-old woman was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries. Neither her identity nor the 76-year-old man's was released. A two-hour standoff with police and Park County sheriff's deputies Monday began after the woman left a camper at an RV park and sought help at a gas station.

The woman says her boyfriend shot her during an argument. Police approaching the camper say they heard what sounded like a gunshot. They later used a robot to confirm the man inside died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot.
