RICHMOND, Texas – Two people were killed Wednesday in a shooting that deputies said they believe was a murder-suicide at a Fort Bend County home.
The shooting was reported about 10:50 a.m. at 3300 Breeze Bluff Way in the Harvest Green neighborhood.
Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls said that a woman discovered two people shot inside the home and called for help. Deputies arrived and found one person dead and another person critically injured. The second victim died at a hospital.
Nehls said a baby was in the home at the time of the shooting.
“It is truly, I guess, a blessing that that young boy, that young child, was not injured in all of this,” Nehls said.
The victims were only identified as a man and woman in the late 20s or early 30s. Nehls said the victims were acquainted, but the nature of their relationship is under investigation.
