According to the Houston Police Department, a man shot a woman multiple times in a car in the parking lot of Texas Children’s Hospital West Campus on Sunday before turning the gun on himself in the passenger seat.

The shooting happened around 2 p.m., according to the police. The woman’s daughter, who was 8 years old, was in the back seat. They said that it seemed like the two were taking the girl to the hospital for medical care for a reason that had nothing to do with each other. The shooting did not hurt the girl.

At the scene, both the man and the woman were said to be dead. The police said that they don’t yet know what their relationship was, but that the man was not the girl’s father.
