ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) A gunman who shot six people to death, four of them children, in what appeared to be a domestic dispute in a Houston, Texas, suburb late on Wednesday came to the home disguised as a FedEx driver, a police official said. Harris County Constable Ron Hickman says the suspect, "came in the guise of a FedEx driver wearing a fed ex shirt. Came to this residence, gathered up the children that were here, and awaited the arrival of the parents." Hickman identified the shooter as Ron Haskell and said he was not the father of the children killed, but rather a relative. Hickman added the violence stemmed from "obviously a domestic situation that went south, probably a divorce or separation." The victims were two boys, ages 4 and 14, two girls, ages 7 and 9, and a man and woman, ages 39 and 33, a police spokesman said. The shooting occurred in the middle-class Houston suburb of Spring. A 15-year-old girl who also was shot but survived provided police with the name of the suspect and where he was believed to be going after he fled the scene. This enabled officers to head him off before he arrived at the home of another family, police said. After the shooting, the gunman led police on a nearly half-hour pursuit capped by a standoff in a residential cul-de-sac a few miles from the scene of the slayings. Streaming video footage from local television station KTRK showed the suspect's car sandwiched between two trucks where the chase ended, with more than a dozen police vehicles nearby. After a four-hour interlude in which the suspect was seen placing a gun to his head, he walked out of the vehicle with his hands raised, then laid down on the ground to be taken into custody. Five of the victims were found dead on the scene, the Harris County Sheriff's Office said. Two others were flown by helicopter to an area hospital, but one, a child, later died while the other was listed in critical condition, the sheriff's office said. Haskell is charged with multiple capital murder charges.
