Texas Navy recruiter kills wife, fires at NCIS agents before being killed by deputies, authorities say

Texas authorities killed a Navy recruiter who fatally shot his wife and wounded an agent of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service at their Texas home on Thursday, officials said.

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said when two NCIS agents were talking to a woman about a domestic violence problem in the Houston suburb of Atascocita, who described the incident as “something out of a movie.”

The woman, described as being in her mid-30s, has two young children, ages 1 and 3. Both children were at home at the time. The couple had other children who were in school at the time of the murder.

As the agents left, the husband came home and shot his wife, who was holding a child, Gonzalez said. He then picked up a child and ran outside and exchanged gunfire with both agents, authorities said.
