A 26-year-old Kingwood woman was shot several times and killed by the man she was living with, who then turned the gun on himself and committed suicide, Houston police say.
Identities are being withheld, but the incident happened in the 5400 block of Forest Spring Drive about 10:35 p.m. last night, HPD says.
Neighbors heard shots and called police; when officers could get no answer at the door, they entered and found the bodies of the woman and the 39-year-old man.
