FWPD: Man kills ex-wife, himself in front of child

FORT WORTH -- A woman was shot and killed by her ex-husband before he turned the gun on himself Saturday, all in front of a young child.

The Tarrant County Medical Examiner's Office says Krista Copeland, 28, died from gunshot wounds to the head Sunday morning.

At about 10:22 p.m. Saturday, Fort Worth PD found her shot inside her vehicle in the parking lot of the Southwest Regional Branch Library off Hulen Drive.

Police believe she was shot by her ex-husband, 38-year-old Brian Kesner, before he got into his vehicle and shot himself.

He was pronounced dead at the scene. Copeland died at the hospital.

Police say a child in the car with her wasn't injured.
