    Police in Irving said a man is dead after shooting his wife Saturday morning.

    Investigators are working to determine if he shot himself. Before his death, Irving SWAT officers spent hours negotiating with the suspect inside his home along Grimes Road.

    Irving Police responded to a 911 call just after noon on Friday. They said a woman was shot by her husband and was found in their front yard before being transported to a local hospital.

    Officials said she is in good condition Saturday evening. They said the suspect was still in the home when they arrived and another man was inside the house with him.

    The SWAT team set up a perimeter around the house because they were unable to establish contact with the suspect. Several hours later, the man that was inside the home with the suspect came out. SWAT officers sent a robot inside the home which found the suspect dead.

    They said he died from a gunshot wound and it may have been self-inflicted.

    The names of the suspect and woman who was shot have not been released.
