HOUSTON - A mother-to-be was killed Sunday as well as her partner and unborn child after officials say a man believed to be her ex shot them at a soccer park in northwest Harris County and turned the gun on himself moments later.
Deputies with the Harris Co. Sheriff's Office say it happened around 10:15 a.m. at Matias Almeyda Training Center in the 4200 block of Clow Rd. where two people were shot. Responding officers pronounced the man, 35, dead at the scene, while the woman, 28, was taken to a local hospital, where she later succumbed to her injuries.
During a press conference, HCSO Homicide Sgt. Beall said the unidentified woman lost her unborn child as well.
Moments later, Sgt. Beall said the suspect linked to the shooting was found dead with a self-inflicted gunshot wound in the 700 block of Bayou Forest.
Based on preliminary information, the shooter is believed to be the woman's ex-husband, who came to the soccer field and approached the woman. Several family members were around as witnesses, who told officials he planned to take his own life and when his body was found, he and the gun he had matched the description investigators received.
