Chester County authorities are investigating an incident at an East Fallowfield Township home this morning that ended with a man shot to death and a woman bound, according to a news release.

Around 12:32 a.m., emergency dispatchers received a call from a woman in the township, which is about three miles south of Coatesville, who said that she had been bound and a man at her location had shot himself.

According to the release, responding officers found the woman bound on the living room floor and the male "suspect" with a single gun shot wound to his chest. He was pronounced dead on scene. Neither the identities nor the relationship of those involved was released.

The investigation remains ongoing.
