Navy recruiter kills wife as she’s being interviewed by NCIS over domestic violence claims

The wife of a military recruiter who accused her husband of abuse was shot and killed in her home while she was being interviewed by Naval Criminal Investigative Service investigators.

The deceased woman was holding a child in her arms when the suspect rushed into the home and shot her, according to Fox 26 Houston. The child was unharmed, but the Harris County Sheriff’s Office said an NCIS investigator was also shot and is in serious condition.

The husband fled the scene and later engaged in a gun battle with law enforcement and was killed, Harris Country Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said in a series of tweets:

Gonzalez said two NCIS agents were inside a home talking with the woman, a black female in her mid-30s, about allegations of domestic violence involving her husband, who was a recruiter with the Navy. The sheriff said there were two small toddlers, ages 1 and 3, inside the home at the time.

The agents spotted a vehicle moving up and down the street as they were leaving and were unsure who it may have been. The driver turned out to be the husband, who barged in and shot his wife, according to the Fox affiliate.

“The husband then picked up one of the toddlers, ran outside, then exchanged fire with the NCIS agents outside,” Fox 26 reported. “It’s unclear if the husband, who has not yet been identified, was holding the child during the gunfire exchange.”
