FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

March 8, 2020

Richmond, Texas


On March 8, 2020 at 4:19 a.m., the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office received a request for a Welfare Check concerning an adult male who may be suicidal and/or may want to harm his family.  

 

Deputies arrived at the location, 9200 block of Sabastian Dr, in the Houston area of Fort Bend County to find an unresponsive household. Deputies had to make forced entry after no one answered the door and observing two apparent deceased people in the kitchen area.

 

Deputies discovered 4 deceased persons inside the home from apparent gunshot wounds. The suspect, 48, appears to have killed his wife, two teen sons, and two dogs before turning the gun on himself and killing himself. The victims are the suspect's wife, 49, and two sons 16 and 13. At this time we are unable to release names as family members still need to be notified. 

 

"This is heartbreaking that an entire family is wiped out from the actions of one person," said Sheriff Troy Nehls. "Violence is never the answer and there are people you can call to ask for help. We have a terrific Crisis Intervention Team that is ready at all time to help you or a family member in distress."
