Texas Shooting Kills Four Children, Two Adults

Posted: Updated:

A man in Houston is facing charges after killing six people, including four children.

Investigators say the man identified as 33-year-old Ron Haskell shot and killed four children ages four to 13 and their parents.

He also shot and injured a 15-year-old girl, but she was able to call police and warn them about the shooters next target.

Haskell was on his way to the home of more relatives to continue his shooting spree when police were able to chase him down and corner him in a cul de sac.

Police then were in a standoff with Haskell, lasting for three hours.

Police say that shooting appears to be related to a domestic dispute.

Haskell is expected to be charged with multiple capital murder charges.
