Thanksgiving Day Massacre: Ex-Husband Continues Shooting at Houston Home, Killing 2, Injuring 2


A shooting at a residence near Houston, Texas on Thanksgiving night left two dead and two injured, authorities said. An adult injured in the shooting is in critical condition.

Houston police are continuing to investigate the scene in the 1500 block of Baggett Lane, Spring Branch, where four people, including three adults and a teenager, were fatally shot. The two surviving victims were taken to hospital, Fox Houston reported.

HPD Deputy Chief Patricia Cantu told a Thursday briefing that the family had just finished eating a Thanksgiving meal together when the deceased’s ex-husband entered through the backdoor and opened fire on family.

Police said they were unsure of the relationship between the victims at the time, as the family had invited non-family friends to the rally.

“It’s a very sad situation. It’s Thanksgiving. People are supposed to celebrate with their families,” Cantu said, calling the shooting a “domestic incident.”

She added, “We pray for the families.”
