On Jan. 29 at 8:21 p.m., officers responded to a house in the 3100 block of Heartleaf Lane in Waldorf for the report of a possible shooting. The caller, who lives elsewhere, said she received information from a relative who indicated she had just shot her husband.
When officers arrived, they made entry into the house and discovered a male and female with gunshot wounds. The male, 68, was flown to a hospital and admitted in critical condition. The female, Linda Lindsey, 64, was pronounced dead on the scene; a firearm was recovered by her side.
The motive for the shooting remains under investigation but the case is an apparent attempt murder and suicide. Det. G. Higgs is investigating.
