DALLAS (TND) — A preliminary investigation in Dallas has determined a man who died after he shot a woman was killed by the same bullet he fired, local police say.
According to the Dallas Police Department, 26-year-old Byron Redmon shot a woman in the neck, but the bullet he fired at her exited the woman's neck and, somehow, hit him in the leg. Redmon reportedly died later at the hospital.
Authorities also reported that the woman is still alive, having been treated and released from the hospital on the same day she was shot.
The shooting occurred at 11:39 a.m. on Saturday, Dallas police said. Cops were reportedly called to an apartment where they found a blood trail and a large amount of blood. However, police said they could not find any victims.
Police were then alerted to the fact a man and woman had been found in a vehicle near a hospital. They both had reportedly sustained gunshot wounds. That man was identified as Redmon, police revealed, but the identity of the woman has not been released.
After an investigation, detectives determined that both people had been wounded by the same bullet and that the shooting occurred during a domestic dispute, according to Dallas-Fort Worth Scanner.
The Dallas Police Department says the investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
