Pregnant woman and boyfriend shot to death by ex-husband at Texas sports facility
HOUSTON - Two people are dead after someone started shooting at a soccer tournament in south Texas.
KTRK reported sometime before 10:30 a.m. July 25, a woman and her boyfriend were confronted by her ex-husband inside of the Harris County sports facility before he shot both of them.
Harris County Sheriff's Office said the gunman fled the scene.
The woman, who was pregnant, was taken to a hospital where both her and her unborn baby were pronounced dead. KTRK said she had two children at the soccer tournament with her, but they were not harmed. The man died at the scene.
