The women may have been involved in an altercation with a male before the shooting, authorities said. He allegedly shot them and fled in a vehicle, Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said.

On Tuesday morning, Gonzalez said a possible suspect was located by deputies.

He was sitting in a parked car outside a grocery store when he shot himself, he said. He was taken to a hospital in critical condition.

No deputies were injured or fired their weapons, Gonzalez said.
