CYPRESS, Texas (AP) - Two people died and two were injured in what police are calling a murder-suicide in Cypress, Texas.

The Houston Chronicle reports (https://bit.ly/1PbIaWj ) that a couple’s adult son tried but failed to prevent his terminally ill father from killing himself after he had already shot his ailing wife.

Harris County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Thomas Gilliland says the 77-year-old husband shot and killed his 73-year-old wife. When the man shot himself after a “tussle” with his son, the bullet went into the son’s arm. Fragments of the same bullet were lodged behind a home health aide’s ear.

Harris County Precinct 4 Constable Mark Herman says the health care worker was transported by helicopter to Memorial Hermann Hospital in critical condition. The son was transported by ambulance to an area hospital.
