HOUSTON (AP) - Police say a Houston man shot and killed his 12-year-old daughter and wounded his wife and 14-year-old daughter before killing himself at their home.
Houston police spokesman John Cannon says the incident happened at the house in southwest Houston about 1:30 p.m. Sunday. The dead girl was shot multiple times, while her older sister was shot in the neck. The 43-year-old mother was wounded in the back and paralyzed. She and her older daughter were taken to Ben Taub General Hospital in critical condition.
Adam Dalami, who owns a convenience store across the street, told the Houston Chronicle that he saw the man step onto the lawn of the family condominium, put the gun barrel against his chin and pull the trigger.
