6 dead, 4 children, in Houston area shooting


A car chase led to a tense hours-long standoff between Texas authorities and a man who is suspected of shooting seven people and killing six of those people in a domestic dispute. 

According to KRIV, the shooting happened Wednesday afternoon in a Harris County Subdivision. Local authorities say the suspect is in his 40s and is a relative of the victims — four children and two adults. 

KTRK reports the lone survivor of the shooting, a mother of one of the children, was shot in the head but was able to call 911 and tell authorities the suspect was a family member. In an attempt to get away, the suspect led authorities on a car chase.

The nearly 30-minute chase ended in a neighborhood cul-de-sac with authorities lining the entire street. This image from KHOU's managing editor shows SWAT teams ramming the man's car, trapping him inside. (Via Twitter / @BillBishopKHOU)

The man finally surrendered and was taken into custody by authorities around 10 p.m. local time. There's no word on what charges the suspect will face.
