July 1, 2014 - Houston police are investigating the shooting of a man and a woman and apparent suicide of a male suspect at 10950 Fullerton about 7:30 p.m. on Monday (June 30).

The female victim got into an argument with the suspect, who is her husband. As the argument escalated, the woman retrieved a gun and tried to get the suspect to leave the house. The suspect took the gun from the female and shot her. The woman's son, who had gone outside to call the police, came back into the residence and was also shot by the suspect. The suspect then turned the gun on himself.
