Police say a man who apparently shot himself in a Beaver County apartment building surrounded by police is the same man suspected of fatally shooting a woman outside a Wal-Mart hours before.

The dead woman is Mariah Anderson, 22, of New Castle, Lawrence County, and state police Lt. Eric Hermick says the dead man is believed to be the shooting suspect, Carlos Harper, 27, who had been dating her. Online court records show police obtained a warrant for his arrest on charges of criminal homicide and aggravated assault Monday morning.

Anderson was shot Sunday night after finishing her shift at the store in Union Township, Lawrence County, several miles from New Brighton, where Harper lived.
