Authorities in Texas are searching for the man they say shot and killed three children– including a baby– and severely injured another woman on Thursday in an apartment complex.
Police in the Houston-area suburb of Texas City identified the slain children as an infant girl, a toddler boy and a 5-year-old girl. A woman with a gunshot wound to the head was also found at the scene, a police statement said.
All four were found after a relative called the police around 6:15 p.m. to perform a welfare check at their apartment complex, a police statement said.
