COVINGTON, Wash. — Deputies with the King County Sheriff's Department are investigating a fatal shooting at a house in Covington around 2:30 p.m. on Thursday.
The shooting occurred at a residence near the 25000 block of 180th Avenue SE, just north of Crestwood Elementary School.
Deputies said when they arrived at the scene, they located the body of a 30-year-old woman in the home.
After a search of the suspected shooter, deputies found the 32-year-old suspect dead in a bedroom with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. Their identities have not been released.
Investigators are still determining the relationship between the victim and the suspect, but they do not believe they were a couple.

Covington is located just east of Kent in King County.
