Texas Police: 5 Children, 3 Adults Found Dead Inside Home

HOUSTON (AP) — Eight people — including five children and three adults — were found slain inside a Houston-area home and a man who exchanged gunfire with police is in custody, Texas authorities said Sunday.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office said in a statement that the eight people were found dead after a welfare check was conducted at the home. The 49-year-old man was taken into custody after members of the Harris County Sheriff's Office High Risk Operations Unit and Hostage Negotiation Team negotiated his surrender.

Deputies were called to the home about 9 p.m. Saturday to perform a welfare check, Harris County Sheriff spokesman Thomas Gilliland told KHOU-TV (http://bit.ly/1HyVKtb ). Gilliland said deputies later received information indicating that a man inside the home was wanted on a warrant for aggravated assault on a family member.

Gilliland said while waiting for a High Risk Operations Unit to arrive, deputies spotted the body of a juvenile through a window. Four deputies forced their way into the home, prompting the suspect inside to begin shooting. Deputies pulled back and waited for the operations unit to arrive. The man surrendered about an hour later.

The relationship between the suspect and victims wasn't immediately known. No further details were released. Officials say more information will be given at a news conference set for 3 p.m.

The area around the home was still cordoned off Sunday morning, with sheriff's deputies coming in and out of the house and the medical examiner's office having arrived at the scene.

Alan Cartagena, 19, said he was attending a barbecue at a home a couple houses away. About 11 p.m., he said, deputies started going around the neighborhood knocking on doors.

"Cops were walking around with their handguns out, telling people to remain in their houses. They were also telling them to evacuate. It was extremely scary," he said.

Cartagena said he heard one gunshot but wasn't sure if there were more.

Neighbor Dalila Mercado says when she arrived home Saturday night officers had already blocked off the area. She said she was sitting in her driveway when she heard gunshots coming from the house and officials then told her and her family to go inside their home.

Mercado said she could still see from her bedroom window and watched as a man was escorted out of the house after midnight. She said officials then had him next to her fence, taking fingerprints and photographs.

"It was shocking. I haven't slept all night," she said.

Mercado says she didn't know the residents of the house well, but would occasionally say hello to a woman and see children waiting to catch the school bus. She said she didn't recognize the man taken out of the house.

Re: Texas Police: 5 Children, 3 Adults Found Dead Inside Home

This was about 20 miles down I-45 S from me. I read a thread on this in another forum earlier this evening. Man, people that don't live in this state have a fucked-up idea of what it's like to live here.

Re: Texas Police: 5 Children, 3 Adults Found Dead Inside Home

It's even worse. He executed 8.

Quote:
HARRIS COUNTY, Texas – David Conley, 49, told Harris County Sheriff's investigators that he broke into his former home and killed eight people, according to a Harris County prosecutor.

Investigators said Conley admitted to breaking into the home through an open window after the woman he formerly lived with, Valerie Jackson,40, changed the locks on the doors.

Conley told investigators that he restrained eight people inside with metal handcuffs, including Jackson and shot them in the back of the head.

The identities of the victims were released in a press conference Sunday afternoon. They include, Valerie Jackson, her husband Dwayne Jackson, 50, Dwayne Jackson, Jr., 10, Nathaniel Jackson, 13, Honesty Jackson, 11, Caleb Jackson, 9, Trinity Jackson, 7, and Jonah Jackson, 6.

Nathaniel Jackson was apparently the son of Conley and Valerie Jackson.

Doctors at the scene of the 2200 block of Falling Oaks, near Veterans Memorial and Fallbrook Drive, said all eight victims suffered gunshot wounds to the head and died at the scene, the prosecutor noted.

Conley, who didn't appear in court, has been charged with three counts of capital murder and had bond denied--one capital murder count covers multiple deaths, another is for a person under 6 years old, according to court records. He was wanted on a warrant assault on a family member and is now being held in the Harris County Jail.

Conley was arrested Saturday evening after a standoff with police in the 2200 block of Falling Oaks, not far from Veterans Memorial and Fallbrook Drive, after Harris County Sheriff's deputies responded to the home for a welfare check.

After the standoff, deputies found the six children and two adults dead inside the home.

Chief deputy Tim Cannon said Sunday the incident is a tragedy with which the community is all too familiar.

"We're here today on a very sad day," Cannon said. "We're here with our brothers in arms standing behind us because we're all hurting. It's a difficult day for us at the sheriff's office. Once again, a tragedy has struck…our city. Our hearts go out to those…affected by this tragedy."

HCSO Spokesman Thomas Gilliland said when deputies arrived around 9 p.m., no one responded at the front door. They then received more information that indicated a man in the home was wanted on a warrant.

The sergeant on the scene called for a High Risk Operations Unit, similar to SWAT, to help make entry and investigate. While the call was being placed, deputies surrounded the home, and they spotted the body of a juvenile through a window.

At that point, the sergeant and three deputies forced their way in, and Conley began shooting, the sheriff's office says. Deputies pulled back and waited for the HROU and a negotiator to arrive.

Authorities established contact with the Conley, and after more than an hour he came outside and surrendered without further incident.

The bodies of eight people were found in the home, Gilliland said.

"At this time we have what appears to be five children and three adults," said Gilliland. "Ages and genders we do not have, and cause of death we do not have. The medical examiner will have to determine a cause of death."

Deputies said they have received calls at the home before and Child Protective Services said the family did have a history with them.

Neighbors woke up Sunday morning in disbelief about the tragic scene nearby.

David Conley has an extensive rap sheet that dates back to 1988.

Conley's criminal record includes a history of family violence and drugs and DWI charges.

The 49-year-old was arrested Saturday evening and later charged with capital murder after eight people, including five children and three adults, were found dead in a home in the 2200 block of Falling Oaks Road in northwest Harris County.

Prior to Saturday's arrest, Conley was recently charged with assaulting a family member—his second such charge—on July 8 when he allegedly pushed his girlfriend's head against a refrigerator multiple times, according to court documents.

Conley reportedly told his girlfriend to discipline her 10-year-old son because he returned home from a park after dark. When she said no, Conley reportedly got a belt and said he would do it himself, court documents said.

His girlfriend then reportedly grabbed the belt out of Conley's hands and that's when he allegedly pushed her head against the refrigerator.

In 2013, Conley was charged and convicted of aggravated assault of a family member when he threatened his same girlfriend with a knife.

An emergency protective order and a no contact order was issued against Conley, court reports show, and he pleaded guilty and was sentenced to nine months in county jail.

Conley was sentenced to five years in prison for a 2000 retaliation charge in which he was accused of putting a knife to his then-girlfriend and threatened to kill her, her baby and himself.

That came after she filed an assault charge for cutting her with a knife and punching her in the face.

In the wake of the shooting, loved ones of the victims have set up a GoFundMe account to help with funeral expenses.

Re: Texas Police: 5 Children, 3 Adults Found Dead Inside Home

Can we expect the #blacklivesmatter campaign to highlight this sort of black violence?

Or is it only good when whitey does it?

Hmmmm?

They already have a built in social evasive tactic to avoid such scrutiny.

He was oppressed, and a victim of systematic racism.

He was born into poverty, so knows not what he does.

He genetically suffers mental and emotional trauma from the 100s of years of slavery and Jim crow laws.

It's Christian right winger's faults.
