(Newser) – A Florida man who killed himself during an argument with his girlfriend almost took an unsuspecting neighbor with him, police say. The woman stepped outside her cousin's house to take a phone call and was shot through the leg by what investigators believe was the same bullet that had passed through the head of the 28-year-old man moments earlier, reports the Tampa Bay Times. The man died at the scene while the neighbor—whose fiance was almost arrested before police found the gun under the man's body—was hospitalized and should be released later this week.

He was cheating with neighbor. His girlfriend called her. She went to porch to take call she thought was him. Girlfriend then shoots her on porch, and her boyfriend, makes look like suicide.
