UPDATE (February 17, 2016, 11:15 a.m.):

Police have identified the man and woman involved in yesterday's domestic-related murder-suicide. The man is Muhammadu S. Igomigoh, 49, of the 300 block of Shagbark Rd., 21220; the woman is Nnenna L. Ogbonna, 44, of the 700 block of Northrup Lane, 21220.

The homicide investigation shows that Igomigoh shot Ogbanna, his estranged girlfriend, before turning the gun on himself.

The two have two children in common but no longer lived together. Detectives determined that Igomigoh visited Ogbonna's home yesterday, and the two argued over financial matters.

The handgun Igomigoh used was legally registered to him. Igomigoh also had a "carry" permit for the gun, which he used in his employment as a security guard.
