COLFAX, Texas (AP) — Authorities say an East Texas man has been arrested for fatally shooting his wife after finding her at the home of another man.

The second man also was shot and was transported to a hospital Sunday for treatment of his wounds.

Van Zandt County Sheriff Lindsey Ray says the shooting occurred about 6 a.m. when the husband went to a home near the town of Colfax looking for his wife.

Ray says the husband called 911 after the shooting.

The sheriff says the woman and the homeowner had a relationship prior to her marriage to the man who shot her.

Colfax is about 70 miles east of Dallas.
