A pregnant woman and her boyfriend were murdered in a shooting at a soccer tournament in northwest Harris County on Sunday morning, according to reports
Relatives believe the shooter was the woman’s ex-husband and that he pulled the trigger following a fight between the 3, but authorities have not confirmed this.
The shooting occurred shortly before 10:30 a.m. at the Matias Almeyda Training Center, according to ABC13.
According to investigators, the suspected gunman opened fire on the woman and man before leaving the scene.
The man who was shot died at the scene, and the 28-year-old woman was taken to a local hospital, but she and her unborn child were pronounced dead.
About two hours later, relatives told police they got a text message from the presumed shooter in which he stated his intentions to commit suicide.
Deputies discovered his body inside a home in the 7700 block of Bayou Forest, 10 miles away. According to investigators, they located the man’s body 10 miles away, with a self-inflicted gunshot wound and a pistol was discovered near his body.
Sgt. Ben Bell with the Harris County Sheriffs Office Homicide unit told the station, the pistol lying next to him matches the pistol we had over here.
