HOUSTON — Two adults and four children were killed in a domestic shooting in Spring, Texas, on Wednesday night, said Harris County Constable Ron Hickman.

A seventh person, a 15-year-old girl, was also shot. She was taken to a local hospital.

A suspect, an uncle to the children, was taken into custody late Wednesday, according to Hickman.

Before the suspect surrendered, he was involved in a short chase with sheriff’s deputies, who surrounded him.

The suspect is separated from his wife, who lives out of state, Hickman said.

Spring is located about 20 miles north of Houston.
