2 adults, 4 kids die in shooting at house in Houston suburb

SPRING, Texas

A suspect in the slayings of six people, including four children, at a suburban Houston home has surrendered after a three-hour standoff with deputies.

The man had led a parade of almost two dozen deputy constables’ patrol cars to a cul-de-sac in a northern Houston suburb shortly before 7 p.m. After hours of waiting and negotiations, the man emerged from his car, raised his hands and sank to his knees as deputies placed him under arrest.

No identity has been released.

Authorities say he’s suspected of shooting and killing the six at the house in Spring. Only a wounded 15-year-old girl was left to identify the man and offer a clue to where he was headed.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office issued a news release saying that precinct deputy constables were called to the house in the northern Houston suburb of Spring about 6 p.m. Wednesday and found two adults and three children dead. Another child later died at a hospital.

“It appears this stems from a domestic issue with a breakup in the family from what our witness has told us,” Assistant Chief Deputy Constable Mark Herman of the Harris County Precinct 4 Constable’s Office told reporters.

Authorities did not release the victims’ identities and did not say how they might be related to each other or the suspect.

The woman who survived identified the shooter and directed deputies to him.

Deputies were able to intercept, chase and corner the suspect in his vehicle in a cul-de-sac about 3 miles from the shooting scene.
