    The woman involved in Tuesday's apparent murder-suicide in Hollywood has died from her gunshot wounds, according to police.

    Hollywood Police initially responded to reports of gunfire on Tuesday at the 6500 block of Grant Street at 5:33 p.m. When they arrived, they found a woman suffering from gunshot wounds and the male shooter had fled the scene.

    The woman, identified as 21-year-old Carla Yesmi Eusebio Deogracia, was taken to Memorial Regional Hospital, where she died from her injuries on Wednesday, police said.

    Officers responded to reports of gunfire at about 6:08 p.m. on Tuesday at 300 North 72nd Terrace and found a man suffering from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. They said this was the man responsible for the earlier shooting.

    "We were on the porch when we heard a first pop," said a neighbor who went by the name Bryan. "Then we heard pop. Then pop, pop."

    Hollywood police confirmed Wednesday that the man, who is in his 30s, had died.

    Neighbors said the woman was picking up her infant son when the toddler's father opened fire as she was getting into her car. Moments later, the man jumped in his car and raced away to his apartment.

    "His friends tried to see what's wrong with him, knocked on the door, asked to see the keys. We went in and found him laying on the bed," said landlord Ingrid Guevera.

    Guevera said the man was a good tenant, quiet and humble. She said she didn't think something like this was in his character.

    "Speechless, that's all I can be," she said.
