TX Woman Posts Murder-Suicide Plan On Facebook Before Carrying It Out

Two women are dead and a child is seriously injured after an apparent murder-suicide in Powderly, Texas.

Police say it happened when a mother shot her son and her estranged husband's girlfriend before turning the gun on herself.

Deputies say the girlfriend was in the car with the husband when Salida Young pulled up with a handgun then shot and killed the girlfriend.

Deputies then went to Young's residence were she was found with a deadly self inflicted gunshot wound to the head and her 10-year-old son also shot in the head.

Before the shooting Young had posted several suggestive messages on her Facebook page.

"The suspect, Ms. Young, had left an in depth note of her intentions, of what she was going to do. And I hate to say it, but she pretty well followed it, right to the T," Lamar County Sgt. Joe David Tuttle said.

The 10-year-old is currently in a Dallas hospital where he remains in critical condition.

Police say Young also shot at her estranged husband but he was not injured.
