HOUSTON (KIAH) — Another murder-suicide incident happened in Houston, this time in the Montrose area on Wednesday night.
A man shot a woman and then turned the gun on himself in an apartment complex at 1007 Van Buren Street near West Dallas Street.
Houston police officers said around 8:20 p.m., they went to do a welfare check on the woman after she didn’t come back to work.
When officers entered the apartment, they found her and the man with gunshot wounds to the head.
Police believe the 31-year-old man and the 29-year-old woman were in a relationship, but recently broke up this past summer. Police said that they found a gun near the man’s body and a gun holster in his waistband.
Police are continuing to investigate the incident. Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600.
