A Texas Woman shot by her ex-husband while on the phone with a 911 operator telling them her marriage had recently ended and that she was in the middle of a heated argument with her ex.
CBS News The ex-husband reportedly fatally shot the woman before turning the gun on himself, all of which took place around 5:30 a.m. Thursday outside an apartment complex in the Dallas suburb of Lewisville.
Authorities say woman argued with ex-husband while telling 911 to report domestic incident
Authorities say the former couple, neither of whom could be identified on Friday, were engaged in a loud argument in the complex’s parking lot when multiple gunshots were heard.
Just moments earlier, the woman had called 911 to report the domestic incident, according to the outlet.
“The woman informed dispatchers that her marriage to the man had recently ended,” police officers said, according to CBS News. “A short time later, when the woman called 911, several gunshots were heard and the call fell silent.”
The witness told investigators that they, too, began calling 911 to report the shooting and told operators the man shot the woman and then took his own life.
Officers who arrived at the scene found the woman with multiple gunshot wounds to the chest while her ex-husband’s body lay nearby, which was a gunshot wound to the head, CBS News reports.
Former couple were known to local police for previous domestic violence calls, authorities say
The woman was taken to a local hospital but was pronounced dead just an hour later.
Meanwhile, the alleged gunman also succumbed to his injuries about an hour after his ex-wife died.
Authorities say the couple were known to local police from previous calls to their home for mostly non-violent reports of domestic violence.
However, when called, the husband slashed his wife’s tires, the outlet quoted a police department spokesman as saying.
The news comes just weeks after the murder-suicide of Tamara Sawyer, who was shot dead by the man she said she had been in an on-off relationship with since high school KHO 11.
