Police: Woman shot, killed in domestic dispute

A woman was shot and killed late Tuesday night in what police are calling a domestic dispute. 

Officers were called out to the Fontaine West condo complex off of Panola Road and upon arrival found a woman who'd been shot one time inside one of the units.  

A man described as her boyfriend was still on the scene, according to investigators. He told them that the couple got into a fight, it escalated to violence and then gunfire.

The victim was 39-years-old. Police think she likely was shot one time. Her name has not yet been released.

The victim's 40-year-old boyfriend was taken into custody. According to investigators, he could end up facing murder charges.  

The suspect has also not been identified.

Besides the couple, there was no one else inside the unit, which detectives think belongs to the suspect. They told us evidence on the scene leads them to believe that the female victim didn't live there.
