A Glendale man who allegedly shot a woman to death Friday evening and pushed her body out of his car off the 210 Freeway in La Crescenta remained in surgery after apparently shooting himself, officials said.
The identities of the man and the woman were not immediately available.
Authorities closed the La Crescenta Avenue off-ramp from the westbound 210 Freeway where the body was dumped from a black Honda shortly after 5 p.m., when police started fielding 911 calls from witnesses.
“There is a possibility that a witness saw some type of scuffle inside the vehicle as they were approaching La Crescenta [Avenue],” said L.A. County Sheriff's Department Lt. Mike Rosson.
Glendale police officers were the first responders at the scene, where they discovered a body on the side of the off-ramp.
“They ultimately responded to the La Crescenta offramp where they found one female who had suffered at least one gunshot wound,” Rosson said.
