Police are investigating after a couple and their daughter were killed in a shooting in southwest Houston. Police believe they know who the shooter is.
The shooting happened at an apartment complex located at 12101 Fondren Rd.
Investigators said a 10-year-old girl told relatives a man knocked on the door and when her father answered, he went inside.
Police said the girl played dead and then FaceTimed her grandmother and other relatives around 10:30 p.m. saying she had been shot inside the apartment. The grandmother called the police and when officers arrived, they found the victims– Gregory Carhee, Gonyavia Lagway, and the couple’s 6-year-old daughter Harmony had been fatally shot, investigators said.
The 10-year-old was shot in the arm. Police said paramedics rushed her to the hospital in stable condition. There was also a 1-year-old baby inside the apartment, investigators said.
The girl told officers the shooter picked the baby up and put him on the couch before opening fire.
“It’s devastating. My niece, she’s brave, very brave,” Angela Irvin said. “My niece told him he had the wrong apartment and he grabbed the baby out the dad’s arm, sat him on the sofa and that’s when he started shooting.”
“Right now, we don’t have all the details and right now we’re just looking for a suspect to see what happened,” Assistant Chief Patty Cantu with the Houston Police Department said.
The couple also has an 8-year-old son that was not home during the shooting, investigators said.
Police said the shooter is not in custody at this time.
Detectives say there is surveillance video, so they’re hoping it’ll help in the investigation.
