Unidentified Female in Murder-Suicide, Bayou Body Count No. 70

A woman was killed this morning on the east side by a man who then committed suicide, police say.

The names of the couple have not been released, but Houston police say the incident happened about 8:30 this morning in the 12700 block of Woodforest.

The two, apparently an estranged married couple, argued and then the wife locked herself in a car, according to media reports.

The man fired several shots through the car window, hitting her in the chest. She was taken to a hospital where she was pronounced dead.

The man's body was found in a pickup truck a few blocks away; he had apparently shot himself, police say.
