A SWAT team standoff in Richmond ended Sunday afternoon after a husband who was barricaded in his home killed his wife and then took his own life, Fort Bend County deputies said.
The incident started at 10 a.m. in the 1400 block of River Cliff Court when a family asked officials to check on the man's wife.
Inside an upscale neighborhood, filled with grand gates, huge homes and manicured lawns, Fort Bend County Sheriff’s deputies spent Sunday collecting evidence and trying to determine why a husband would murder his transplant surgeon wife and then kill himself.
“What we have is a husband-wife situation. It looks like he took her life sometime Saturday evening and then died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound today”, says Detective David Williams.
The murder victim, Dr. Sherilyn Burroughs, was a respected transplant surgeon at Houston Methodist Hospital.
