Texas man who shot a woman in the neck is killed after bullet also hits him

The bullet exited the woman's neck and hit the shooter in the leg, Dallas police said.

A Texas man who shot a woman in the neck was killed Saturday when the bullet also hit him, police said.

Dallas police responding to a report of a shooting at an apartment building found "a large amount of blood and a blood trail in front of an apartment," they said in a statement.

No one was in the apartment when officers arrived at around 11:40 a.m. local time (12:40 p.m. ET), the Dallas Police Department said.

Police then got a call from a nearby hospital about a man and a woman found outside with gunshot wounds, police said. The pair were in a car outside the hospital.

Investigators believe the man, Byron Redmon, 26, shot the woman in the neck, but the "bullet then exited and hit Redmon in the leg."

Redmon died at the hospital. The condition of the woman, who has not been identified, is unknown.

Police said the investigation continues.
