A 20-year-old West Chester woman was shot and killed by her 22-year-old boyfriend before he turned the gun on himself Tuesday, Downingtown police said Wednesday night.
After Thomas Reck's daughter, Mary Elizabeth, did not come home Monday evening, he contacted police.
Downingtown police went to the home of her boyfriend, Kevin Smith, on Jefferson Avenue about 8 p.m. Tuesday to check on the situation.
They found Reck inside the house with multiple gunshot wounds, and she was pronounced dead at the scene. Smith died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, police said.
