KILLEEN, Texas (KBTX)- A man and his ex-girlfriend are dead after a murder-suicide carried out by the boyfriend in a Killeen convenience store.

Police say the shooting happened around 11:55 p.m. at the Valero Corner Store, located at 1000 W. Stan Schlueter Loop.

When they arrived, officers found the man and woman dead.

The murder-suicide was preceded earlier in the day with a confrontation between the two at the store, where the woman was an employee.

She had called police during the first confrontation, but he had left by the time they arrived.

The ex-boyfriend then came to the store again and argued with the woman before shooting her and ultimately turning the gun on himself.

Justice of the Peace Claudia Brown declared the two deceased.

The shooting is under investigation by Killeen police.

The identities of the deceased were not immediately available.

Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call Bell County Crime Stoppers at 254- 526- TIPS (8477) or by submitting them through the P3tips app for iOS and Android.
