SPRING, Texas (AP) — Six people are dead, including four children, after someone opened fire at a home in a normally quiet neighborhood in a northern Houston suburb.
A spokesman for the Harris County Precinct 4 Constable’s Office says a woman was wounded. No information was immediately available on identities or how the victims were related.
A Harris County Sheriff’s Office statement says precinct deputy constables were called to the house about 6 p.m. Wednesday and found two adults and three children dead. Another child later died at a hospital.
The wounded woman was able to identify the gunman and direct deputies to him. Those deputies cornered the suspect in a nearby cul-de-sac. That standoff is ongoing.
