Six killed after father opens fire in Texas story image

HOUSTON, Texas (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Six people are dead, including four children, after their father opened fire inside a home in suburban Houston Wednesday night.

Investigators say the man also shot two adults and badly injured his 15-year-old daughter.

She was still able to call police, telling them that her father planned to leave the home and go to her grandparents' home to kill them, too.

A couple of SWAT team vehicles eventually corned the man and a 3-hour stand-off began.

Police say after several hours of tense negotiations, he surrendered.

They say the gunman was apparently going through a divorce and that his estranged wife was out of state.

"I don't know what people go through when they go through a divorce. I imagine the rage is great, that's the unfortunate thing," said neighbor Manar Saah.

"I'm so worried about the families about what he did to them because it's so sad," said a neighbor.

The children who were killed were boys, ages 4 and 14, and 7 and 9 year old girls. Two of them were adopted.

The teen who warned police about her father is in critical condition Thursday morning.
