PEARLAND, Texas (AP) – Authorities say former Major League Baseball player Darryl Hamilton has been killed in a murder-suicide at a suburban Houston home.

Police say Hamilton was found Sunday after he was fatally shot at the home in the community of Pearland.

Police Lt. Patrick Savage says an initial investigation determined Hamilton was shot several times and that a woman in the home died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. She was identified as Monica Jordan.

Hamilton played 13 seasons in the majors before retiring in 2001, and the standout center fielder was part of the 2000 New York Mets team that went to the World Series. He played 148 games for the Texas Rangers in 1996, compiling a .293 batting average with 184 hits while scoring 94 runs and driving in 51.

He had been working as an analyst for the MLB Network.

Police say a 14-month old child of Hamilton and Jordan was found unharmed at the home.
