ARANSAS PASS, Texas (AP) - Officials say a South Texas firefighter has killed himself after fatally shooting his wife and 11-year-old stepdaughter at their home.

Aransas Pass Assistant Police Chief David Perkins said Wednesday that the Tuesday night shooting was prompted by a domestic dispute between 46-year-old Steven Dolan and his 47-year-old wife, Brenda Dolan.

Perkins says Steven Dolan was found with a gunshot wound to the head and with a handgun beside him.

Perkins says Dolan’s stepson and other stepdaughter were also in the home at the time of the shooting. Police found the surviving stepdaughter hiding by a boat and the stepson trying to help his mother.

Robert Rocha, the Corpus Christi fire chief, said Steven Dolan had worked for the fire department for 19 years.
