ATLANTA (AP) — Authorities have identified a man suspected of shooting a woman to death outside an Atlanta office building before killing himself hours later.

Atlanta police Sgt. Greg Lyon says an autopsy will performed on 43-year-old Douglas Hope, but investigators believe he killed himself inside his home in Clayton County.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (http://bit.ly/1jn5g7E ) reports that police found the man dead in the house Wednesday afternoon. They'd gone to search the home following the shooting death of 47-year-old Bridgette Holt earlier in the day.

Authorities say Holt died at a hospital after being shot outside a building in Midtown Atlanta in what they call a case of domestic violence.

Police haven't said how Hope and Holt were related.
