Two dead in murder-suicide outside Texas hospital

A spurned husband gunned down his ex-wife’s new beau outside a Texas hospital Wednesday afternoon before turning the gun on himself, cops said.

Both men were declared dead at the facility.

Mission Police Chief Robert Dominguez said at a press briefing that the gunman had agreed to meet with his ex and her boyfriend to discuss the love triangle during a break from her job at the Mission Regional Medical Center.

Instead, the woman’s former husband opened fire with a shotgun, shooting her boyfriend before turning the gun on himself, Dominguez said at the briefing, live-streamed by valleycentral.com on Wednesday.

“This young lady basically started a new relationship with this young man and the ex-husband wasn’t too happy with the situation,” the chief said.

He said the woman was not injured and called the police after the shooting.

The hospital was temporarily placed on lockdown, Dominguez said.

“There’s so many things that impact our lives every day and we really need to really think about what is out there that can help us deal with these traumatic experiences in our lives and not do obviously what this young man did,” he said.

“He took this young man’s life and took his own lives,” he added. “Obviously there’s other ways to deal with these types of situations.”

Cops are not releasing the identifies of the victims or the woman, and Dominguez said no additional information is being released while the investigation is ongoing.
