Three people were hurt this morning in a shooting at an apartment building in southwest Houston (KTRK)

A husband allegedly shot his wife and 6-month old baby girl before shooting himself this morning at an apartment complex in southwest Houston, according to police.

The shooting happened around 8:30am at Deering Drive near Country Creek Drive.

Houston police say a neighbor heard arguing and went over to the apartment and found a man shooting a woman and a baby also wounded.

All three victims were alive when they were sent to the hospital. The baby is expected to be OK. Officers tell us the woman was most seriously hurt. There's no word yet on their condition.

We're told the husband called an ex-girlfriend shortly after he allegedly shot his wife.

Takarra Miles, the suspect's ex-girlfriend, tells Eyewitness News, "I got a call this morning saying he shot his wife and by the time I got here, they were pulling him out and he had barricaded himself in the house until he shot himself, so that's all."
