Authorities say a Pennsylvania woman was fatally shot by a man who then tried to kill himself inside a home where two children were present.

Northampton County Coroner Zachary Lysek says a woman was killed and a man injured in the shooting late Tuesday in Bethlehem. The man was hospitalized in critical condition.

Police Commissioner Stuart Bedics tells The Morning Call of Allentown the slain woman was Margie Reyes.

The Express-Times of Easton interviewed Reyes in 2005 about the construction of the Habitat for Humanity home where she was killed.

Bedics says a teenager and a child younger than 10 were at the home at the time of the shooing and one of them called 911 to report a domestic dispute and gunfire. Neither child was injured.
