When my husband arrived to work just before 9 this morning, he noticed a police car and ambulance outside the building, which is at the southeast corner of Hillcrest and LBJ Freeway. When he went into the office, a couple of his coworkers told him there had been some sort of the attack on the second story of the building. Now NBC 5 has confirmed that was the case: a woman was reportedly beat to death with a baseball bat by her ex-husband this morning in that building.
The man then drove to the George Bush Turnpike in Carrollton and threatened to jump off the overpass. After an hour of negotiation, police were able to convince him not to jump and have now taken him into custody.
