Multiple people dead in shooting following Houston family breakup
SPRING, Texas (AP) — Deputies have cornered a man suspected in a shooting at a suburban Houston home that resulted in multiple fatalities.
Harris County Precinct 4 Assistant Chief Deputy Constable Mark Herman says the Wednesday evening shooting apparently arose from a breakup in the family who lived in the house. He says a woman who was wounded identified the gunman and warned that he planned to kill more people at another relative’s home.
Authorities have not confirmed how many people died. However, Herman said a child died after being airlifted to a Houston hospital. Herman said the woman and child were the only victims still alive when deputies arrived.
Houston TV station KTRK reported that five children and one adult are dead.
Herman says deputies intercepted the suspect and cornered his car in a cul-de-sac about 3 miles from the shooting.
