A 10-year-old girl survived a fatal shooting Wednesday in Houston after pretending to be dead.

Police responded to reports of shots fired near West Airport Boulevard after 10:30 p.m. Three people, including the child’s mother, father, and 6-year-old sister, were shot and killed. The 10-year-old girl was shot in the arm and taken to a hospital, family members said.

The girl had apparently played dead after she was shot and alerted her relatives of a man in a mask lining up her family on a couch and shooting them all in the head.

One family member said the girl had contacted her grandmother on FaceTime after the incident and showed her the scene.

“She said, ‘Granny, someone came in and shot me, my mom, my dad, and my sister, and they’re dead,'” said Angela Ervin, a family member. “She was in the house for about 15 minutes with the bodies until we got here.”

The couple who died had four children, including a 1-year-old boy who was uninjured and an 8-year-old son who was at his uncle’s home when the shooting occurred.

“This is a very, very tragic scene. We’re sending out prayers to the family,” said Assistant Police Chief Patricia Cantu. “This was a very difficult scene, not only for us, the officers, but the family as well. So we’re sending out prayers and hopes that anybody has any information.”

Police do not have a suspect in custody.

  1. I’m praying that God took the family into Heaven, and Praying for the survivors. Hope the Shooters get caught and get what they deserve. For someone to do this is not human.
