KILLEEN, Texas (AP) - Police in Central Texas are investigating an apparent murder-suicide at a Dollar General store.

Killeen spokeswoman Carroll Smith said that a man entered the store Sunday afternoon, then found a woman and shot her before killing himself. The woman was pronounced dead shortly afterward.

There were several employees and customers in the store, but no one else was injured.

Police did not immediately identify the gunman or the victim.

Killeen is about 70 miles northwest of Austin.
