Man accused in FW murder kills self

FORT WORTH -- Authorities say a woman was killed after being shot several times in a Fort Worth mall parking lot, and the man who killed her then committed suicide.

The victim was sitting in her car outside Ridgmar Mall Monday evening when the suspect approached her and began shooting. She called 911 herself, and the gunman fled the scene.

The victim was taken by ambulance to Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital where she died of her injuries. 

Tuesday morning police confirmed that the suspect had shot and killed himself.

The victim and suspect have not been identified.

Our sister station KCEN reports that the suspect led DPS troopers on a chase to Temple, then shot himself in his vehicle. Interstate 35 in that area was closed overnight as officials investigated.
