DALLAS — Authorities report a man died by suicide after killing his ex-wife in her home and fleeing from Houston.

Lorenzo White, 55, is suspected of breaking into the home of Lisa Daniel on Monday in northeast Harris County while she and her teenage son were present inside and shooting her multiple times.

White then fled in a vehicle, and a manhunt shortly ensued.

White was discovered by U.S. Marshals in Dallas, according to authorities.

Dallas police initiated a traffic stop against White.

White refused to exit the vehicle and held a gun to his head, officials said.

Authorities believe the incident to be a case of domestic violence.

Dallas PD SWAT team arrived at the scene and White shot himself shortly afterwards and was pronounced dead.

Harris County Sheriff's Office, U.S. Marshals, and Dallas PD worked in conjunction for the investigation regarding Daniel's death and the location of White, authorities report.

Sheriff Gonzalez of Harris County provided resources for those who are victims, especially children, of domestic violence.
