Brother Kills Sister, Self at Housewarming Party in Katy Home

Authorites are not sure what led to the shooting

A sheriff says a brother fatally shot his sister and wounded three others before killing himself at a housewarming party in Southeast Texas.

The Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office said deputies were called to a home at about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday. The woman was dead, while the suspect later died at a hospital. Two other women and a man who were wounded are expected to survive.

Deputies said early Thursday that the family had just moved into the neighborhood, and investigators trying to figure out what prompted the attack. All of those hurt are "family and friends."

Two other women managed to escape the shooting, and deputies found a teenager locked inside a bathroom, not physically hurt.
