Six Dead In Shooting At Suburban Houston Home


UPDATED: Wednesday July 9, 2014 10:24 PM

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.
