CLEVELAND -- The suspect in a shooting that left the brother of Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams dead reportedly shot herself in Pennsylvania.

Police said William D. Williams, 34, was found shot to death at about 2:50 a.m. Tuesday.

The U.S. Marshal's Office said a homicide warrant was then issued for Williams' girlfriend, Dana Johnson, 36. Pennsylvania troopers later pulled Johnson over a few miles over the state line, and she shot herself.

According to the Cleveland Division of Police, Johnson was listed in critical condition at a Pittsburgh hospital.

U.S. Marshal Pete Elliott said he believes Johnson was alone in her vehicle at the time. Authorities suspect she was headed to Maryland, where she has relatives.
