Woman Shot in Head, But Who Pulled the Trigger?

Brett Blume

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) –  Was it a suicide attempt — or attempted murder?

That’s what St. Louis police are trying to determine after a 33-year-old woman was found shot in the head in a south city home early Wednesday.

The call came in as a “suicide attempt”, and first responders to the home in the 2200 block of Wyoming near Benton Park  found the victim lying inside the home with a gunshot wound to the head.

A preliminary investigation led police to suspect that wound may not have been self-inflicted.

Police are talking with a person of interest, but no charges have been filed.

The woman’s hospitalized in critical condition.
