A Texas shooting left four dead and one in critical condition in Texas, according to USA Today.
A police spokeswoman said a preliminary investigation revealed that a 30-year-old male suspect fatally shot a man and a woman and wounded another woman at a home late Sunday.
She said the suspect then then forced his wife into their residence.
The Killeen Police Tactical Response – SWAT Team – Unit was called in after the suspect barricaded himself inside their home. After several efforts to communicate with the suspect failed, officers went in a early Monday and found the bodies of the suspect, 30, and his wife, 28.
Killeen, with a population of about 130,000, is the home to the Army’s Fort Hood.
On November 5, 2009, Major Nidal Malik Hasan, an Army psychiatrist, opened fire killed 13 people at Fort Hood and wounded more than 30 others. He was shot but survived and was sentenced to death. Appeals are underway.
On April 2, a shooting spree occurred at several locations on the Fort Hood base, leaving three people dead and sixteen others wounded. The gunman, an Iraq War veteran, died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Former Deputy Found Dead After Allegedly Shooting Ex-Wife, Sheriff, And Deputy In Georgia
Authorities were searching for clues in a bizarre series of events Sunday night after a former sheriff’s deputy, who was accused of fatally shooting his ex-wife and wounding a sheriff and another deputy, was then found dead with another man.
The two officers were shot while responding to a domestic abuse call in Clarksville, Georgia, at about 7:20 p.m. ET, the state patrol told NBC Atlanta affiliate WXIA.
When the officers arrived at the home of former deputy Anthony Gianquinta, they found a woman, the suspect’s ex-wife, in a garage and an armed man on the scene who took shots at them both.
The Habersham County Sheriff, Joey Terrell, and a deputy identified as William Zigan were transported to local hospitals for treatment. The sheriff was hit in the right arm, and the deputy was hit in the upper clavicle/chest area, according to Mark Perry with the Georgia State Patrol.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation said that — after allegedly shooting his two former colleagues — Gianquinta didn’t get far before crashing his car, then doubling back to the house.
When officers searched for him, they found the body of Gianquinta and yet another man near the back of the house, the GBI said. The investigation is ongoing.
