Man killed ex-wife and shot himself in front of their son

A man shot his ex-wife dead before turning the gun on himself, in front of their nine-year-old son, police said,

Brian Kesner, 38, called the cops himself after shooting 28-year-old Krista R. Copeland outside a library in Fort Worth, Texas, on Sunday morning.

He then shot himself in the head and police found his body in the parking lot of Southwest Regional Branch Library at just after 10.30am.

Copeland, a mother-of-two, was rushed to hospital where she died from gunshot wounds to her head a short time later.

Their son was not harmed. 

The former couple had married in Tarrant County in March 2012 but appear to have separated in recent years. Copeland was in a relationship with a new partner when her ex shot her to death.

Police say she had agreed to meet Kesner, at the public private lot to allow him to visit his son.

Witnesses outside a nearby synagogue told police they had heard the couple yelling and arguing moments before Kesner pulled out his gun and shot her while she sat in the driver's seat of her car.
