Police say a shooting at a Dallas-area home left a man dead and his estranged wife in custody. Arlington police on Monday announced the woman was arrested at the scene.

Police around 9:30 p.m. Sunday responded to a domestic shooting call. The body of the man was found in the garage of the house.

A statement from police spokeswoman Tiara Ellis Richard says, based on the initial investigation, it appears the woman shot her husband. The name of the victim was not immediately released.

Police say the pair had been getting a divorce.
