HOUSTON — Five children and one adult have been fatally shot, and a mother is fighting for her life after a family member opened fire inside a north Harris County, Texas, home on Wednesday evening, according to KTRK.

A mother is also fighting for her life.

As deputies were responding to the scene, a news helicopter noticed a vehicle leaving the scene and the vehicle was chased. The chase ended in a cul-de-sac within only a few minutes and a standoff is underway.

Deputies say the mother was shot in the head but managed to call 911 and tell them that a family member was the gunman.

The gunman is now barricaded in a car and has a gun to his head.
