BRADENTON, Fla. (CBS4/ AP) —Authorities said a man shot and killed his ex-girlfriend before turning the gun on himself on Thanksgiving.

The shooter was identified as 26-year-old William Rolston and the ex-girlfriend as 26-year-old Lindsay Bellow, according to the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office.

The Sarasota Herald-Tribune reported Saturday the couple had recently ended a long-term relationship and were arguing in Rolston’s Bradenton apartment at the time. Police responded to the shooting at approximately 7 p.m. Thursday.

Rolston shot to death Bellows and then shot himself, deputies said.

The Sheriff’s Office has not yet released a 911 call made by neighbors after the shooting.

No further information about the shooting has been released.

    I just don’t get it at all I guess he couldn’t handle the fact she no longer wanted him around her but I have to wonder if she had taken out a peace bond out on him and he broke the law?

    He killed her and then killed himself and you’re worrying about whether or not he broke the law by being around her? They were in his apartment, by the way….
