Posted: Updated:

BAYTOWN (KHOU) - A husband shot his wife and then himself in an attempted murder suicide, according to investigators.

Both were airlifted to Memorial Hermann in critical condition.

Shortly after 3 p.m. Sunday, relatives were getting ready for a family gathering in the 1200 block of Olive St. The couple got in to an argument and the 58-year-old man shot his wife, 50, two or three times before turning the gun on himself.

Neighbors say they heard at least five gunshots.

The couple's two children were in the home at the time of the shooting as well as an 8-month-old grandchild.
