The sheriff's office is not listing this case as a murder-suicide. They are now calling it capital murder. But, they aren't releasing any details. The latest news release is asking for Crimestoppers tips. We are working to get more info.

This is now even scarier. Authorities pretty much led the public into thinking this was a murder suicide by not disclosing any information that the case could be headed somewhere else. As a resident of that part of the county, I am a little upset the public was not provided additional information on a more timely basis.
A resident in Longwood was shot by people burgalizing cars not more than a year ago when he went outside to see what dogs were barking about. The authorities showed very little interest in that case even with the victim in the hospital.
I think the word is out that this area of Harris County is easy pickings because the really is no police / law enforcement in the area.
Word from a deputy friend is that they were all shot execution style, including the two kids. They said they weren't putting out the details (ie originally 4 deaths and no details) because of the nature of the case.
Basically all four family members were tied up and shot in the head execution style and that the kids were shot twice. Several things lead them to believe it was some type of home invasion including broken windows. They are searching for one or more suspects. No idea if they have someone in mind or not.
GAP... The Longwood shooting had a few more details... the man came out and saw them breaking into cars, he FOLLOWED THEM to another home. One of the perps turned and saw him, chased him, man fell THEN he was shot. call police if you see a crime...
