Abilene, Texas (KTAB) — Two Texas children lost their mother after police say their father shot and killed her. He then turned the gun on himself.
Abilene Police said they were called to an apartment for a domestic disturbance. While at the scene, they heard two gunshots coming from inside the home.
"The two shots, well obviously one shot was for the victim, the second shot was the suspect attempting to take his own life. As of right now he was unsuccessful in that. He is alive in serious condition at Hendrick Medical Center. He is in our custody right now."
Police said the suspect is recovering from surgery. Authorities are expected to file charges of murder and injury to a child.
The couple's two-week-old child was also seriously injured in his mother's shooting. He was taken to the hospital and is now with relatives.
His 4-year-old sister witnessed the shooting, but was unharmed.
