CLEVELAND (AP) -- Police say a woman shot herself in the head inside a Cleveland hospital and is believed to be the wife of a man found dead hours later in a vehicle at a hospital parking garage.

Police say the 58-year-old woman was put on life support after she wounded herself Thursday evening at MetroHealth Medical Center. Officers identified the woman as an outpatient at the hospital but didn't immediately release her name or hometown.

Hours after the shooting, hospital security found a 61-year-old man dead in the passenger seat of a car at the parking garage. Police say he had been shot.

The county medical examiner and a police homicide unit are investigating what happened.
