Police say the two people shot were a mother and father who are in the process of divorcing. The father was meeting the mother at the gas station to give her their two sons.

At some point, police say the dad became "extremely angry" and pulled out a gun. Police say he then shot his estranged wife in the head before turning the gun on himself. He died on the scene. The mother died at the hospital.

The couple's children, ages 11 and 14, were there at the time of the shooting. Both witnessed the entire incident, but neither of them got hurt. They are now staying with other family members.
