RUST TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -

Police say they believe a northern Michigan man fatally shot a woman before killing himself as she dropped off their young daughter at his home.

State police say the 22-month-old girl was found unharmed at the home following Sunday's deaths in Montmorency County's Rust Township.

According to investigators, 30-year-old Danielle Klein recently left 38-year-old Eric Shay after an incident of domestic violence. Police say Klein took their daughter to Shay's home so Shay could babysit while Klein went to work, but Shay attacked and shot Klein.

Police say Shay then notified a family member of Klein's to pick up the child before he fatally shot himself. The deaths are under investigation.
