SAN DIEGO — A suspect found dead in his apartment after the killing of a San Diego police officer died by suicide, and a woman found next to him died by homicide, authorities said after an autopsy Saturday.

Holim Lee, 30, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office said in a statement posted on its website.

Lee and the woman – 27-year-old Lucky Xayasene – died sometime Wednesday and their bodies were found in the apartment Thursday, the statement said.

The statement said Xayasene also died of a bullet to the head and her death was ruled a homicide, but it did not specify who fired the shot that killed her.

The pair were found dead some eight hours after gunfire broke out with police and U.S. marshals serving a pair of warrants for Lee, a former seaman with the U.S. Coast Guard. Police officer Christopher Wilson was shot and killed.

One of the warrants, issued July 30, accused Lee of assault with a deadly weapon. Another, dated Oct. 19, was issued for violation of terms of his parole in an armed robbery case.

Lee’s family told The Associated Press that he had hoped to climbed the ranks of the Coast Guard but had turned to drugs and crime after he left the service in 2005.

His brother Hojin Lee said Holim Lee found it “very difficult to live as a civilian.”

Wilson, 50, was a 17-year veteran of the city police force with two children.

Lee’s family issued a statement saying they were “horrified by the circumstances” of Wilson’s death.

    Rest In Peace Officer Christopher Wilson. The lowlife that did this is on the express to hell, at least he saved the taxpayers a lot of money by self imposing the death penality and carrying it out.
