CEDAR CITY, Utah (AP) -- Cedar City police say a 19-year-old woman has died from an apparent gunshot wound.

Police Sgt. J.R. Robinson says Misty Lamoreaux (lah-mor-OH') was found dead in an apartment Sunday morning after officers responded to a report of shots being fired.

Robinson says the woman apparently died of a gunshot wound. Authorities do not know whether it was self-inflicted. Autopsy results are pending.

Robinson says Lamoreaux's 24-year-old husband was arrested at the scene. He was booked into the Iron County jail on suspicion of possession of a dangerous weapon by a restricted person and failure to stop at the command of an officer.
