Houston police say Debra Davis, 58, sat in her car when she saw her husband, Rodney Johnson, 49, with the other woman. 

Neighbors told police they heard arguing shortly before midnight and then gunshots rang out, reported KHOU.

Johnson, who was hit in his lower torso, was rushed to Ben Taub Hospital, where he died. After the shooting, Davis fled the scene. Johnson's friend was not hurt.

Around 7 a.m. on Wednesday, Davis turned herself in to police, authorities said.
