Police Investigate Murder-Suicide in San Mateo

San Mateo police are investigating an apparent murder-suicide that occurred Monday morning.

The victim, a 42-year-old man, was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

Minutes after discovering the victim, officers located the suspect at a home in the 1600 block of Marina Court, but when the suspect refused to

Following four hours of negotiations with police, the suspect took his life. The suspect’s wife — who was inside the home at the time — was
unharmed.

Police are investigating the case, including a motive for the apparent murder-suicide.
