Authorities in Mount Pleasant, Texas, say a man shot and killed his girlfriend and a co-worker then turned the gun on himself outside a vocational center. Titus County Sheriff Tim Ingram told the Texarkana Gazette that 48-year-old Lee Boyd shot 35-year-old Junior Lee Horton about 6:30 a.m. Thursday in the parking lot of Vocational Opportunities Center of North East Texas. Ingram says Boyd then sat in the cab of his truck and shot himself in the head.

Deputies who went to Boyd's home found 45-year-old Vivian Mitchell dead with gunshot and stab wounds.

Ingram said Boyd was upset with Mitchell because her ex-boyfriend had started working at the center where Mitchell also worked. The sheriff said it appears Boyd shot Horton because of a previous argument between the two.
