DUMAS, TX (KFDA) -  A Dumas man shot a woman in the neck before fatally shooting himself Sunday morning, according to the city's police department.

The deceased man is identified as 27-year-old Mark Leamon Smith. The female, whose identity remains withheld, is in stable condition at Northwest Texas Hospital in Amarillo.

Police responded to a home in the 300 block of Denton Sunday morning. Responding officers found Smith and the victim inside one of the home's bedrooms with gunshot wounds. The woman was airlifted from the scene.

An infant and a 2-year-old child were also found in the home uninjured. They have since been released to other family members.

The family relocated to Dumas from the Dallas area approximately two months ago.

Final results of the investigation are pending until submitted evidence is fully processed.
