A 45-year-old Kauai man fatally shot his ex-wife in front of their 9-year-old daughter then killed himself late Monday, police said.
Kauai police identified the 42-year-old woman as Celestae Gibbons and her 45-year-old ex-husband as Justin Gibbons.
At about 10 p.m. Monday, police said, Celestae Gibbons arrived home at Halelani Village condominiums on Hanalima Street with her 9-year-old daughter. Her ex-husband approached her after she exited the vehicle while their daughter was in the backseat.
Police said an argument ensued outside the vehicle when Justin shot her. Celestae Gibbons ran to a nearby unit to seek shelter but Justin Gibbons followed her inside the apartment and shot her again, according to police. He then ran outside of the complex and fatally shot himself.
Both Celestae and Justin Gibbons were pronounced dead at the scene.
Court records show the couple divorced last month.
Their daughter was not injured and is now in the custody of state Child Protective Services, according to Kauai County officials.
Police are continuing their investigation.
