Man travels to Chicago from Georgia, shoots wife in head before killing himself.
Officials arrive at crime scene just seconds before shooter committed suicide.
Police told couple was in the middle of a divorce process.
A Pakistani-American photographer was gunned down by her husband in Chicago after he travelled to the state from his house in Georgia and later shot himself dead as the officials reached the crime scene.
The officials had arrived at the condominium of Sania Khan, 29, over the police’s request for a well-being check on the 36-year-old shooter, Raheel Ahmad, as his family had reported him missing, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.
As per the publication, the officials heard a gunshot and a “verbal groan” after they knocked on the door. They found Khan unresponsive with a bullet wound on the back of her head and dried up blood on her face.
Meanwhile, Ahmad was found in the bedroom with a bullet wound in the head, a 9mm Glock handgun in his hand, and a suicide note lying nearby.
The woman was pronounced dead on the spot while the man died after being shifted to the hospital.
The police were informed that the couple was in the middle of a divorce process and Ahmad travelled all the way to meet Sania to “salvage the marriage” but ended up taking both lives.
However, two of Khan’s friends said that the divorce had been finalised in May.
