RICHMOND, Texas - The Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office says a man who admitted to shooting his wife at their Richmond home has been arrested in Louisiana.
A call came in around 5:45 p.m. Tuesday for deputies to perform a welfare check at the house located in the 19200 block of Mustang Pointe.
Deputies say the husband who lived in the home called a family member to say he shot his wife and left her inside.
When deputies arrived, the woman was found dead inside. We’re told no complaints were filed against the couple in the past.
The suspect was arrested by the St. Martin Parish Sheriff's Office SWAT on Wednesday morning.
We’re told the couple’s two children, ages 3 and 1, were with him at one point, but were found safe.
