Police added the sports complex had been rented out for a series of youth football games, which is believed to be the reason Harris and Lauderdale were at the sports complex together.
“What a sad set of circumstances that took place during this event,” Rosenberg police said. “Children came to play a game they love, only to have it ruined by a career criminal committing an act of family violence. Our thoughts and prayers go out to those affected by this tragedy and we will pursue appropriate charges so justice may be served.”
