Victim was husband of shooter's counselor

Texas authorities say a man fatally shot the husband of his psychological counselor before killing himself outside a day care center where the victim was picking up his daughter.

Arlington police identified the man killed outside the day care Friday evening as Steve McIntosh. They say he is married to a counselor at the University of Texas at Arlington. She had been counseling the shooting suspect but recently stopped and referred him elsewhere.

A spokesman for the Tarrant County medical examiner says he can't release the suspect's name yet.

Police say they have no indication that the shooting suspect and the counselor had any relationship other than a professional one.

Day care center employees told officers that they heard gunshots just after the man and his daughter walked outside.
