EULESS -- Police are investigating after a suspect who they believe shot a woman at a Euless apartment before shooting himself while driving on the interstate.

Just after 11 p.m. Thursday, police were called to the Enclave at Bear Creek Apartments on Ash Lane where they found a woman in her 30s with a gunshot wound. She was taken to the hospital and underwent surgery. She is now stable, according to Euless PD.

A child was inside the apartment when the shooting took place but wasn't injured.

Shortly after the shooting, Dallas police discovered that the suspect who fled the location was involved in a traffic accident on Interstate 35. They discovered that he had crashed and was suffering from what seemed to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

He was taken to the hospital where he died. He's been identified as John Pierre DuPont, 53.
