Police: Alvin man found dead after shooting wife

ALVIN, TX The wife was flown from the couple's home in Alvin to Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston late last night. The husband called 911, saying he was cleaning his gun and accidentally shot his wife. When investigators got to the home, they found the wife and she also claimed it was an accident, but her wounds are indicating the contrary.

"There are some indications, we're still waiting on doctors to report to us, but there are indications that she was struck more than once," said Lt. Todd Randell with the Alvin Police Department. "Initial thoughts are that's not the case, but we still have a long way to go."

Investigators say after he shot his wife, the husband then got inside one of the couple's vehicles and shot and killed himself. They found his body after a search of the area.
