Press conference from Harris County Sheriff’s office
David Conley has been charged with capital murder after eight people were found dead in a northwest Harris County home.
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 five children and three adults dead inside the home.
The sheriff’s office will be holding a 3 p.m. press conference to provide more information.
Gilliland said while waiting for a High Risk Operations Unit to arrive at the scene, deputies spotted the body of a juvenile through a window. Four deputies then forced their way into the home, prompting the 49-year-old male suspect inside to begin shooting. Deputies pulled back and waited for the operations unit to arrive.
Deputies pulled back, and the man surrendered about an hour later.
“At this time we have what appears to be five children and three adults,” Gilliland said. “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.”
The relationship between the suspect and unidentified victims wasn’t immediately known. No further details were released.
