SPRING, Texas — Six people are dead, including four children, after someone opened fire at a home in a Houston suburb.

A spokesman for the Harris County Precinct 4 Constable's Office says a woman was wounded. No information was immediately available Wednesday night on identities or how the victims were related.

A Harris County Sheriff's Office statement says precinct deputy constables were called to the house about 6 p.m. and found two adults and three children dead. Another child later died at a hospital.

The wounded woman was able to identify the gunman and direct deputies to him. Deputies cornered the suspect nearby, and a standoff is ongoing. (AP)
