A man killed the mother of his children and then aimed the gun at himself in Louisville. But he survived the shooting.
Lewisville Police Department Captain Dan Rochelle said it happened after 11 a.m. in an apartment in Colonial Village at Oak Bend Apartments on East Round Grove Road.
The man does not live in the apartment and was told to leave when he appeared. Instead, he kicked the door, shot the woman, and then himself.
She died of her wounds, but he survived and was taken to a local hospital with serious injuries.
Captain Rochelle said the couple’s three children were home at the time. They were not injured but witnessed the shooting.
The Child Protection Services and the Child Advocacy Center in Denton County now take care of the children, the eldest of whom is 9 years old.
