FORT BEND COUNTY, TX – A horrific incident unfolded in Fort Bend County, where four adults and a child lost their lives in a shooting that authorities believe stems from domestic violence. The Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office was alerted to the incident on Cory Cornel Lane early Saturday morning.
Arriving on the scene, the officials assessed the situation alongside fire trucks and ambulance crews, as shown in the security camera footage from a neighboring house. The investigators’ preliminary conclusion was that the shooting was a case of domestic violence. The sheriff’s office confirmed that the body count includes the shooter and ensured that there is no ongoing threat to the public.
In addition to the casualties, a single adult and two children managed to survive the incident without any harm. A neighbor, Harold Williams, described the inhabitants of the house as a quiet family who kept to themselves.
Williams left to go to work early on the morning of the incident without noticing anything out of order. It was only later, when their son pointed out the yellow police tape cordoning off the crime scene, that the Williams family realized the extent of the incident next door.
The crime scene is marked with the tragic reality of a family destroyed, a fact that left the neighbors struggling to make sense of the senseless act of violence. The investigation into the incident continues.
