A shooting at a Stallion Springs residence left a woman dead and a man in critical condition from what appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound, the Kern County Sheriff's Office reported.
In a KCSO news release issued Thursday, the Stallion Springs Police Department received a call about 4 p.m. Wednesday regarding a shooting at a residence located in the 28000 block of Preakness Drive in Stallion Springs.
A Stallion Springs officer and Kern County Sheriff deputy responded to the call and found both the man and woman suffering from gunshot wounds inside the residence.
The woman, who was later identified Friday by the Kern County coroner as Andree Julia Calkins, 75, was pronounced dead at the scene. The man was taken to Kern Medical where he is listed in critical condition, according to the sheriff's news release. Authorities have not released his identity or relationship to Calkins.
The incident was turned over to Kern County Sheriff's Office homicide detectives who assumed the investigation, the news release said.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Kern County Sheriff's Office at 861-2110 or the Secret Witness Line at 322-4040.
This story was updated Friday after the coroner released the name of the deceased woman.
