Quadruple Homicide – Suicide Stretches Across County

Just after midnight on Friday night, Corsicana Police received a 911 call reporting that a known suspect had killed his family members. Upon arrival, CPD officers located an adult male and adult female, deceased in their residence in the 2900 Block of W. 2nd Avenue. According to a press release issued by CPD Chief Robert Johnson, the decedents had suffered gunshot wounds.

During the course of the investigation, CPD officers located two additional gunshot victims, who were both transported to a Dallas area Trauma Center.

Additionally, The Navarro County Sheriff’s Department responded to a second location near the intersection of Garrity and Stroud Streets in Frost, Texas. Upon arrival, NCSO deputies found the bodies of an adult male and a child, both suffered fatal gunshot wounds. A third adult female was also found with multiple gunshot wounds and was transported to a Dallas area trauma center. Her condition is unknown.

Corsicana Police detectives were able to identify and track the suspect vehicle by its GPS navigation system. Multiple Corsicana Police units, Corsicana PD SWAT, and Navarro County Sheriff’s Deputies searched for and intercepted the suspect vehicle on FM-1129, just south of Roan Road.

According to Chief Johnson, “at that time, we instructed the monitoring service to remotely turn off the vehicle’s engine. As the vehicle came to a full stop off the roadway, Corsicana SWAT officers approached the vehicle to find the driver critically injured from a self-inflected gunshot wound to the head.”

Corsicana SWAT, Doctor Mathew Branch, administered treatment at the scene. Ambulance personnel then transported the suspect to Navarro Regional Hospital, where he expired from his injuries.
This incident is still under investigation.

The names of the deceased are being withheld, pending notification of next of kin.
