Husband kills wife, then himself in Columbia Heights

A man shot his wife and then himself Saturday afternoon in front of a Columbia Heights restaurant, the Star Tribune reported.
Construction crews nearby heard gunshots around 10 a.m., and police received calls about the shots shortly thereafter.
When police arrived they found two people dead of what appeared to be gunshot wounds. Police described it as a domestic incident, and said it only involved the husband and wife.
The shooting occurred in the parking lot of Asia Chow Mein shortly before it was supposed to open. Police believe they pulled into the parking lot and then killed each other, the Pioneer Press said.
Authorities did not identify the victims Saturday, but they are believed to be Josef and Natalia Tomasovic.
Police said a motive for the incident was unclear but a relative said Natalia had made plans to leave her husband.
