A woman is in critical condition, days after a man shot her, then turned the shotgun on himself.
According to the Broward Sheriffs Office, deputies responded to a 911 call about a domestic disturbance in Tamarac just before midnight on Friday.
A witness, a woman whose name was not released, said she saw 37-year-old Mario Rosado Jr. pull Deborah Shannon, also 37, into his apartment at 8351 Sands Point Blvd. When deputies arrived, they could see through the window and front door that both Rosado and Shannon had been shot.
They forced their way into the apartment just before 12:30 a.m. Saturday and pronounced Rosado dead of apparently self-inflicted injuries, according to a BSO report.
Shannon, listed as living at a different Tamarac address, was taken to Broward Health Medical Center.
BSO said she remained at the Fort Lauderdale hospital Monday in critical condition.
The current relationship between Rosado and Shannon was not known, but in November 2006, a woman by the same name filed for an injunction against a man named Mario Rosado Jr. in Browards domestic violence court. A month later, a Deborah Shannon filed to established paternity and get child support from Mario Rosado Jr., according to Broward court records.
The injunction against Rosado was dismissed at Shannons request the following January.
