Woman, Estranged Husband Dead in South Texas Murder-Suicide

Officials say a gunman crashed his truck into an SUV driven by his estranged wife during a South Texas chase that ended when he fatally shot her, then himself.

The Bexar County Sheriff's Office on Tuesday did not immediately release names of the couple, who recently separated.

A sheriff's statement said the San Antonio-area murder-suicide happened Monday night.

Authorities said the man was chasing his wife and eventually crashed his pickup truck into the back of her SUV as she stopped near a grocery store parking lot. Investigators said the man shot his spouse during an argument, then turned the gun on himself.

Both people died at the scene.
