LUBBOCK, Texas -- Investigators say gunfire in a West Texas motel room has left a woman hurt and a man dead in an apparent domestic dispute.

Lubbock police believe the man shot the woman several times during an argument late Sunday night before turning the gun on himself.

Lt. Chris Daniels says the injured woman managed to get out of the Budget Motel room and reach the front desk to seek help.

Daniels says the woman has been transported to a Lubbock hospital and is expected to survive. Her name and further details on her condition weren’t immediately available Monday.

The name of the man who died wasn’t immediately released.

Police are trying to determine what led to the argument.
