A 30-year-old woman was shot to death last night in the parking lot for a student housing complex at the University of California Irvine, according to The shooting took place around 7 p.m. outside the Verono Apartments, and appears to be "a deadly domestic dispute," between a couple who lived on campus with their four-year-old child who "was nearby when the gun fire rang out."Preliminary investigations and eyewitness accounts indicate that the couple had been fighting inside their apartment before exiting to the parking lot, "where the 35-year-old suspect pulled out a gun and opened fire." Neighbors report hearing the multiple shots and the ensuing confusion about the nature of the shooting. The victim was taken to the hospital where she was pronounced dead, and the suspect was "taken into custody at the scene without incident." He will likely be charged with murder.

Campus authorities say "this is the first homicide on the school's campus," but students should not be fearful since the suspect fired on a specific target and the campus is not "in jeopardy in any way."
