Police: Pa. woman fatally shot, suspect found dead

PROSPECT PARK, Pa. (AP) — Police in Delaware County say a woman was found fatally shot in her home and her estranged boyfriend was later found dead in a van from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The woman, whose name was not released, was found shot in her home in Prospect Park around 4 p.m. Sunday. Police say her ex-boyfriend, 38-year-old Anthony Serody, had fled the home and was considered a suspect before he was found fatally shot in a van in southwest Philadelphia about two hours later.

Witnesses say Serody had left the home shortly after the gunfire was heard. Police believe the shootings resulted from a domestic dispute.

A spokeswoman for the Delaware County district attorney’s office says Serody was the victim’s ex-boyfriend and that the victim was involved with another man.
