A Highland Park man allegedly attempted to attack his wife early this morning before eventually turning the knife on himself, HP officers said this afternoon.
Sgt. Lance Koppa, a spokesman for Highland Park, said Dina Steele awoke to John Steele standing above her with a knife. After a struggle, John was disarmed by their son and took off to the downstairs kitchen. John then used another item in the house to inflict wounds on himself. After being transported to Baylor Medical Center, John was pronounced dead. Dina Steele is still in stable condition.
Koppa said the attack at this time seems to be a surprise to all parties involved.
