A woman is dead and the suspected gunman has been hospitalized after a shooting inside a Tyler business. It happened at 3:31 this afternoon at CB&I (formerly known as Howe Baker Engineering) on Old Henderson Highway.

A CB&I employee, said by Tyler Police to be a woman in her thirties, was shot close to the entrance area to one of the office buildings at CB&I. She died at the scene. Her name has not yet been released pending notification of her family.

The woman is believed to have been shot by her ex-boyfriend, who then turned the gun on himself. The alleged shooter has been confirmed to be Michael Scott Hudnall, 39, of Flint, who is in undetermined condition at ETMC in Tyler.

Police say Hudnall went to CB&I after an argument earlier Tuesday with the victim, where he allegedly shot her and then himself. Hudnall was found with a self-inflicted gunshot wound close to the victim's body. Police believe that the victim and Hudnall had an intimate relationship. Hudnall has a lengthy police record, with charges including aggravated assault and fleeing a police officer, and was arrested as recently as 12 days ago for failure to stop and render aid.

Witnesses who work across the street from CB&I reportedly heard several gunshots at the time of the shooting.

"I looked up and saw a woman running out of the building...and then we saw a whole bunch of people running out and someone said they saw someone going in just before all this took place," said Robert Bush.

CB&I employees were sent home for the day.

Tyler Police continue their investigation.
