Goldsboro police say the man they believe murdered a woman and then shot himself died.
They are now calling the case a murder-suicide.
Police were called to Slaughter Street Sunday. They say on arrival, they found the body of 26-year-old Tequilla Barrett of Hugh Street inside a vehicle. They said they believe she died from apparent gunshot wounds.
Police then found 30-year-old Derris Oates of Dakota Street near the vehicle, with what they say appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Oates was taken to Wayne Memorial Hospital then transferred to Pitt County Memorial Hospital where he died.
Police say Oates and Barret have had a relationship in the past, and he is the father of her two children.
