Woman Allegedly Killed By Estranged Husband

Police believe a man shot and killed his estranged wife then turned the gun on himself. The shooting happened this morning around 8a.m. at the Summer Green apartment complex in Longview.

31 year old Lori Ruth Long was killed.

Police are not releasing the name of the suspect. He was taken to a local hospital where he is expected to recover from his injuries.

Lori had a five year old child but she was not at home when the shooting happened.

Police went to the apartment after someone from inside the apartment called 911 on a cell phone. "The initial officer that arrived on the scene knocked on the door couldn't get anybody to come to the door.  He heard what he thought was gun shots coming from inside," says sgt. James Johnson.

Lori recently graduated from Letourneau university and worked in sales at KFRO radio. Co-workers say Lori had married the suspect back in March but they were getting a divorce.
