Police say a Detroit-area emergency medical technician fatally shot his wife and wounded his son the day before killing himself.

They say 41-year-old Anthony Gibson of Sterling Heights was found dead in his car Sunday morning near downtown Detroit. On Saturday morning, they say he fired a gun into the car of 38-year-old LaDora Gibson on Detroit's east side, killing her and injuring their 9-year-old son.

Police tell The Detroit News and Detroit Free Press the shooting of the boy appeared to be accidental. The boy is in serious condition.

Police say LaDora Gibson had been staying with relatives because of a domestic dispute.
