WHITEFISH, Mont. -

Police in northwestern Montana say a man shot and killed a Texas man who was visiting his wife, then assaulted her, took his 2-year-old son to a relative's house and drove to his house in West Glacier where he apparently committed suicide.

Whitefish police identify the shooting victim as 43-year-old Gregory G. Rodriguez of Sugar Land, Texas -- the CEO of Global Adventure Outfitters and host of the Sportsman Channel TV show "A Rifleman's Journal."

The shooter was identified as 41-year-old Wayne Bengston. He was found dead of a suspected self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

Bengston's wife told police that Rodriguez was visiting her at her mother's house in Whitefish when her husband showed up at about 10:30 p.m. Thursday, shot Rodriguez, beat her and fled with their son.
