Military recruiter killed
HARRIS COUNTY, Texas — An investigation into a domestic violence allegation ended in a shooting that killed a woman and injured an NCIS agent in a Humble-area neighborhood Thursday afternoon, according to Sheriff Ed Gonzalez.
The events unfolded in the 12500 block of Tullich Run, where agents with the Naval Criminal Investigative Services were interviewing a woman about the report made against her husband, a military recruiter.
At some point during the interview, the suspect arrived at the scene, rushed into the house and shot the woman who was carrying a child in her arms. Then the suspect left the house, where he met with CIA agents and exchanged fire.
