ST. LOUIS COUNTY — A man and woman died in an apparent murder-suicide late Monday night and a young boy was found critically injured, police said.

St. Louis County police identified the woman on Tuesday as Kiaunu Jones, 34, of the 11800 block of Seven Hills Drive.

The boy, about 5 years old, was also shot at the single-family home on Seven Hills Drive. Police were called to the home about 11:30 p.m. Monday for a burglar alarm.

St. Louis County police said it appears that the man shot Jones and the child, then turned the gun on himself. 

The boy was in critical but stable condition at a hospital.

St. Louis County police officer Tracy Panus said police didn't know the man's relationship to the victims.

Seven Hills Drive, in unincorporated north St. Louis County, is north of Interstate 270 and west of New Halls Ferry Road.
