FORT WORTH - Fort Worth police say a woman was shot several times in her car Monday night.

The shooting happened outside of Ridgmar Mall in west Fort Worth. The victim dialed 911 to report the incident, but by the time police arrived, the gunman fled the scene.

Police say after a statewide alert, the suspected gunman took his own life during a chase after officers spotted his car heading northbound on I-35. The man slowed down in construction traffic, then shot himself, according to police.

The woman was taken to Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Forth Worth where she was pronounced dead from her injures.

The shooting is believed to be domestic related, but no further details are being given as both cases are under investigation.
