A woman fatally shot herself on Thursday after neighbors saw her chasing a man down the street, Pearland police said.

Police responded to reports of shots fired in the 5700 block of Grovesnor at 4:45 p.m.

Witnesses told police they heard at least one gunshot and then saw a man running down the street, being chased by a woman carrying a gun. The man ran into a backyard about four houses down from his house as the woman chased him, police said.

A Pearland officer made contact with the woman when arriving at the scene.

When she saw the officer, she shot herself in the head, police said. She died at the scene.

The man was taken by helicopter ambulance to Memorial Hermann Hospital with a gunshot wound to the shoulder.
