    The suspect in an attempted murder-suicide at a Woodbridge, Virginia, motel has died from his injuries, Prince William County police say. 

    James Edward Bishop, 55, of New York died from a self-inflicted gunshot Sunday, according to police.

    On June 12, a woman walked into the lobby of the Quality Inn at 1109 Horner Road with a bloody towel around her head, an employee said. She told the employee a man shot her in the head. 

    According to police, the victim traveled with Bishop from New York. The two were involved in an argument prior to the shooting.
