CYPRESS, Texas (AP) – One woman has been killed and another has been wounded critically in a shooting in a Houston-area church parking lot.
The shooting happened about 7 p.m. Thursday outside Christ the Redeemer Catholic Church in Cypress, a Houston suburb. In a social media posting, the Harris County Sheriff’s Office says a man approached a vehicle in which the women sat and fired repeatedly into it. A sheriff’s spokesman said the dead woman is believed to be the suspect’s 66-year-old estranged wife, the wounded woman is his daughter and the shooting was the outgrowth of a domestic dispute.
Sheriff’s officials said via Twitter early Friday that the 62-year-old suspect “has been located in a hotel” and “SWAT and negotiators are on scene.”
