As police drove toward the couple's duplex, the man, John Pizon, 51, walked into a bedroom and delivered a fatal shot to his own head.
Karen Pizon, also 51, was found mortally wounded with a gunshot wound to the chest (The Daily News says in the back of the head). She was taken to Staten Island University Hospital, where she was declared dead.
