On Tuesday, officials released the identity of the woman who died in the shooting on Monday morning.

The Nueces County Medical Examiner identified the woman as 23-year-old Ashton Dudley.

KRIS 6 News is still waiting on details from the shooting at the 3800 block of Woodhouse Lane on Monday.

UPDATE: April 17, 2023, 3:55 p.m.

CCPD officials have confirmed that the woman shot early Monday morning has died in the hospital as a result of her injuries. One man remains in critical condition, according to investigators.

Investigators say it appears to have been a domestic violence incident.

The man and woman were married. We spoke to a neighbor who didn’t want to go on camera. He said this was all very unexpected.

“They were really good people from what I could tell, there was never an inclining of anything going wrong or in social situations. When I talked to him, it just seemed like a normal family, which is just shocking to hear about,” the neighbor said.

Another neighbor said, "The couple, they were a nice couple. They were loving. They took care of their children, they played with them, and they had bouncy houses when they were celebrating something. It’s weird. It’s definitely something that I wasn’t expecting today.”

Neighbors told us two children between the ages of 2 and 3 were home at the time of the shooting. They’ve now been placed in protective custody, according to officials.

Residents said this is a quiet neighborhood; however, they did not hear any gunshots.
