A Texas man who shot a woman in the neck was killed Saturday when the bullet also hit him, police said.
Dallas police responding to a report of a shooting at an apartment building found “a large amount of blood and a trail of blood outside an apartment,” they said in a statement.
No one was in the apartment when officers arrived around 11:40 a.m. local time (12:40 p.m. ET), the Dallas Police Department said.
Police then received a call from a nearby hospital about a man and woman found outside with gunshot wounds, police said. The couple were in a car outside the hospital.
Investigators believe the man, Byron Redmon, 26, shot the woman in the neck, but “the bullet then exited and hit Redmon in the leg”.
Redmon died in hospital. The condition of the woman, who has not been identified, is unknown.
Police said the investigation is continuing.
