An elderly man was shot dead and a teenage boy was critically wounded Sunday during what appears to have been a domestic disturbance at a home in an unincorporated area in Orange County, authorities said. Investigators detained a woman who lives at the home for questioning.

Officials with the Orange County Sheriff's Department said gunfire erupted just before 4:30 p.m. at a house in the 18000 block of Manning Avenue in North Tustin.

There was also a 9-year-old boy in the residence, but he ran out and was not harmed, they said.

The 73-year-old man was pronounced dead at a hospital and the 16-year-old boy was in critical condition at Western Medical Center in Santa Ana.

Authorities said the woman was hospitalized with an undisclosed injury.
