KATY -- Authorities are investigating after a man killed his wife, then himself, with their two young daughters inside their home in Katy.
Officials said it happened in a relatively new part of Cinco Ranch in the 4500 block of Ferndale Meadows Lane.
Fort Bend County investigators said the man called 911 Monday morning to say that he had killed his wife.
When authorities arrived to the home, he was dead too.
The couple’s two daughters, ages one and four, were inside the home during the shooting. The girls were not hurt. They’re now staying with family members.
“I’m just heartbroken. I’m just heartbroken. Oh my gosh,” said Cindy Booth, a neighbor. “Wow, that poor little girl-- what she must’ve seen and heard.”
