MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Texas (KBTX) A high school reunion turned deadly for one Montgomery County couple.

The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office says Rachel Butler called 911 after her husband, Jason Butler, shot her in the chest before shooting himself in the head outside of their home, west of Conroe, just after midnight on Saturday.

The couple had just returned home from a high school reunion in Houston, where authorities say the two got into an argument which turned physical on the way home.

Rachel Butler was taken to a nearby hospital where she is in stable, but serious condition.

Her husband died from his injuries.

They have two small children who did not witness the incident.
