The medical examiner's office has identified a woman found shot in the head this week in a Waikiki apartment.

Police are investigating the death of 33-year-old Tara Isnin as a murder-attempted suicide.

Paramedics responding to a report of a shooting found her and a man with gunshot wounds early Monday in an apartment.

The 40-year-old man was taken to a hospital in serious condition.

The man remains hospitalized and no arrests have been made.

The medical examiner's office says Isnin died of injuries from multiple gunshot wounds.

According to the Chinese newspaper Shin Min Daily News, Isnin moved to Hawaii from Singapore with her newlywed husband 40-year-old Leo Chavez.  Friends told the newspaper she was contemplating divorce while preparing for the permanent move.  The newspaper also said Isnin's brother is preparing to fly to Hawaii to claim her body.
