Bodies of two adults and two children with gunshot wounds were discovered by authorities when they responded to a house fire call in a southwest Houston neighborhood. Investigators believe that the incident was related to domestic violence and the person responsible for it was on the run.
On Sunday morning, Houston firefighters were dispatched to a home in the 7500 block of Imogene Street near Braeburn Valley Drive and Bissonnet Street near Sharpstown High School. Houston Police Chief Troy Finner said that the responders put off a fire at the home and found the bodies inside, ABC 13 reported.
The victims were a man and woman in their 50s and a boy and girl ages 10 to 13 years old. They were not immediately identified.
“I don’t feel it’s a random event. There was no forced entry,” Finner said, adding that the investigation is still in its early stage and there is not enough information yet regarding the victims’ identity, suspects whereabouts, and how and why these four people died.
Finner assured that they will find who is responsible for the killings. “Whoever is responsible for this, rest assured we are gonna find them and if they’re looking ,they know who they are, and the best thing to do is turn yourself in,” he said.
Authorities also asked citizens to stand up and say something if they know anything about the tragic incident.
