BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Authorities say a woman is dead after being shot by her ex-boyfriend, who later apparently shot himself.

On December 17, the East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Detectives responded to a shooting on the 11000 block of Catalina Ave.

According to authorities, 33-year-old Tangela Detiege, of Baton Rouge, was pronounced dead on the scene at her home from apparent gunshot wounds. According to her Facebook page, Detiege was a school bus driver with the East Baton Rouge Parish School System.

According to reports, her ex-boyfriend, 32-year-old Matthew Thornton, also of Baton Rouge, shot her during a verbal altercation and fled the scene.
