NEW YORK — Police say two women are dead and a man is in critical condition in a suspected murder-suicide attempt in the Bronx.

It happened just before 2:30 p.m. Wednesday in an apartment building in the Soundview section of the borough.

Police believe the 52-year-old man fatally shot the two women before turning the weapon on himself. He’s currently at Jacobi Medical Center in critical condition.

Police say a 54-year-old Susan Trivano was pronounced dead at the scene and 29-year-old Suchari Guzman died at the hospital.

A gun was recovered at the scene. Police say a 1-year-old child was found in the apartment unharmed

This story has been corrected to show that police now say two are dead and one is in critical condition instead of three dead.
