 A woman has died in a Dallas shooting overnight.

Just after 10:30 p.m. gunfire erupted outside a Motel 6 along I-35E near Regal Row.

Police say a security guard was fired on by a woman sitting in a car across the street. He returned fire and killed her.

He was wounded and taken to the hospital.

Detectives spent the night gathering evidence and talking to potential witnesses. They're still sorting out why the woman opened fire.

The Dallas County Medical Examiner has not yet released her name.
