A man and woman were killed in an apparent murder-suicide outside an office complex on a service road along Durham-Chapel Hill Boulevard on Wednesday.

Police responded to the 3300 block at about 3:17 p.m. on a call about shots fired. They found Millicent Blair-Arnett, lying in the parking lot. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Her ex-husband, Anthony Carl Arnett, 45, shot himself as officers arrived on the scene, according to investigators. He was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

The couple, both of Durham, had been married but were divorced.
