2 dead in shooting outside ServiceMaster HQ

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Memphis police say two people are dead in an apparent murder-suicide in the parking lot of ServiceMaster's offices.

Police spokeswoman Karen Rudolph tells The Commercial Appeal that a man shot a woman, then shot himself, shortly before 7 a.m. Monday outside the business in east Memphis.

Identities have not been released. Rudolph says an initial investigation shows that it was a domestic violence incident.
