The alleged gunman finally surrendered Wednesday night after a standoff lasted for hours.

The domestic dispute occurred in the Houston suburb of Spring.

The suspect is accused of shooting a thirteen-year-old boy, a 4-year-old boy, a 9-year-old girl and a 7-year-old girl.

They are all his children, a mix of his biological and adopted children.

Two adults were also killed.

His fifteen-year-old girl was shot in the head, but she was taken to the hospital in critical condition..

The suspect fled the scene and led deputies on a 30-minute chase for more than three miles.

"I guess he was looking for a way out of the neighborhood or something. And he went straight for the cul-de-sac, I guess he didn't know it was a cul-de-sac. And then I saw all the police just fly by," said witness Caleb Casas.

Negotiators were able to get the suspect to surrender peacefully.

Ron Lee Haskell, 33, was charged with capital murder. 


UPDATE: Deputy constables say six people, including at least four children, have been killed in a shooting during a domestic dispute in northwest Harris County and a standoff is underway with the gunman.
