Brother, sister dead in murder-suicide at housewarming party: copsJuly 5, 2019
A Texas man gunned down his sister and shot three others at her housewarming party before turning the gun on himself, authorities said.
John Wright opened fire late Wednesday night at four people, including his sister Julianna Carr, at her Katy home, according to the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies said they were called around 11:30 p.m. to the home and pronounced the suspect’s sister dead. Wright was brought to a hospital, where he later died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, news station NBC-DFW reported.
Two other women and a man were hospitalized with injuries and are expected to survive, authorities said. There were three guests who were able to escape the party unharmed.
The family had recently moved to the neighborhood, and it’s unclear what the motive was behind the murder-suicide, news station KPRC reported.
“Our detectives are here with our crime scene unit,” Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls said. “We are going to try to piece this together and determine what happened.”
