HOUSTON—Detectives investigating the shooting deaths of a Katy couple have found a weapon in the vehicle connected to the case, Fort Bend County Sheriff’s deputies said.

Michael Walton and his wife, Lynda Walton, were found murdered at 5:15 p.m. on May 29, 2014 at their residence in the 24900 block of North Pointe Place in the Lake Pointe Estates subdivision.

Ryan Walton, 20, one of the couple’s four children, was arrested in connection with the case last Saturday in Rosenberg.

Investigators said he was driving his mother’s car, which he took from the residence on May 29.  Detectives received a search warrant for the vehicle and found a .22 caliber rifle, which will undergo ballistic testing.

An initial investigation revealed that the Waltons were shot multiple times with a small-caliber weapon, according to deputies.

Deputies said Ryan Walton admitted he shot his parents to death on May 29.
