GARLAND, Texas (AP) — Police say a Dallas-area man has committed suicide after shooting his wife in the chest and driving her to a hospital.

Medical City Dallas officials on Wednesday said the family has asked that no additional information be released on 29-year-old Ana Porto of Garland.

Garland police say 32-year-old David Espinosa of Garland died Tuesday night.

Witnesses told police about a disturbance in a coffee shop parking lot in which a man shot a woman and forced her into his pickup, then drove away.

Police began to notify hospitals. Minutes later a pickup pulled up to the emergency room of Medical City Dallas and the seriously injured woman sought help.

A Dallas police officer found Espinosa in his truck and with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. Espinosa died in the hospital.
