I'd barely posted the movie listing when I got wind of this AP story—

A lawyer working for an oil equipment company shot to death a fellow attorney while the two were sitting at a desk in Houston Thursday morning and then killed himself, police said.

The victim, shot in the head, was a patent lawyer with Cooper Cameron oil services. The men's names were not immediately released. Police said they were in their 50s or 60s.

Capt. Dwayne Ready said police had no immediate clues as to a motive.

Two handguns -- a .357 caliber revolver and a semiautomatic -- were found beneath the chair of the gunman, who was working under contract at Cooper Cameron, which makes pressure-control systems for oil drilling.

The building had no metal detectors, but Ready said homicide detectives were reviewing tapes from the building's security cameras.

I'm locking my doors tonight.
