A man suspected of killing six people, including four of his children, and wounding his 15-year-old daughter at a home in a Houston suburb surrendered to authorities late Wednesday after an hours-long standoff.
Deputies cornered 34-year-old Ron Lee Haskell in a cul-de-sac approximately three miles from the shooting site, where a standoff ensued before the man got out of his car, put up his hands, and dropped to his knees as he was placed under arrest.
The victims were two boys, ages 4 and 14; two girls, ages 7 and 9, a 39-year-old man and a 33-year-old woman, the Harris County Sheriff’s Department said. The shooting occurred shortly before 6 p.m. in the northern suburb of Spring. The five bodies were found by authorities at the home.
Authorities said the wounded 15-year-old girl, who was shot in the head, was able to call 911 and told the operator that Haskell planned to kill her grandparents at their home.
The names of the victims were not immediately released. The teen was described as being in "very critical condition" at Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston late Wednesday night.
