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.
