KANSAS CITY, Kan. (WIBW) -- Authorities say a gunman pursued two shooting victims as they drove to a Kansas hospital, where he fatally shot one of them at the entrance before killing himself.

Police say the initial shooting happened around 11:30 p.m. Monday in Kansas City, Kansas, and stemmed from an apparent domestic dispute. Police say 28-year-old Dominic Garcia and woman who apparently were wounded then drove about 2 ½ miles (about 4 kilometers) to the University of Kansas Hospital for help.

Upon arriving, Garcia ran to the secured main entrance, where he was shot again before the gunman turned the gun on himself. Police announce Tuesday that Garcia also had died. The gunman's name wasn't immediately released.

The hospital says the woman's injuries aren't life-threatening. No hospital employees were hurt.
