EARLIER STORY:

A man is dead and a woman is being questioned after a shooting near Loxahatchee.

It happened around 6:15 Friday morning at a residence in the 18700 block of Murcot Blvd.

Investigators said the homicide was the result of a domestic incident between a husband and wife.

The woman is in custody but has not been arrested, PBSO said. Investigators said she's being treated as a "person of interest."

WPTV spoke with some neighbors who said the area is relatively quiet and that they didn't hear any gunshots.

Investigators have not released the names of the pair involved.
