The Ada County Sheriff's Office (ACSO) is investigating what they believe is a "murder-suicide" in Eagle.

EAGLE, Idaho — The Ada County Sheriff's Office (ACSO) is investigating what they believe is a "murder-suicide" in Eagle.

The sheriff's office said a 38-year-old man killed one woman and injured another inside the Westmark Credit Union off Eagle Road and Eagle River Street near Highway 44 in Eagle, before turning the gun on himself in the parking lot. 

The suspect was taken to a local hospital in critical condition following the shooting, but ACSO confirmed Thursday morning that the suspect had died overnight.

The shooting happened around 1 p.m. Wednesday. The credit union is surrounded by many other businesses.

ACSO confirmed the shooter likely knew the woman who he allegedly killed and "actively targeted her in the attack." It also said it is unclear if there was a connection between the shooter and the woman he is accused of shooting and injuring; she suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

"We suspect there is no immediate threat to the public at this point," the sheriff's office said in a post on Twitter. 

Eagle Police Chief Ryan Wilkie said they are currently investigating whether the incident was a domestic dispute. 

Ada County Sheriff's deputies, Eagle Police - which is part of the sheriff's office, Eagle Fire and paramedics responded to the shooting.
