HOUSTON – Houston police have arrested a man who allegedly shot his mother eight times Wednesday night, then shot the family cat and dog at a home in southwest Houston.

The shooting happened at the Willowick Court Apartments, located on Las Palmas at West Main, around 9:30 p.m.

 

Police said a woman, who is either in her 60s or 70s, lived at the apartment with her two sons. The family also had a cat and a dog.

One of the sons opened fire on the mother, shooting her eight times in the chest area, and also shot the pets.

 

The mother was transported to Ben Taub Hospital in critical condition. Both pets died at the scene.

Police said the suspect, who is in his 20s, admitted to the shooting, but gave no reason why.

Police said he was once in the military, and found an arsenal of weapons stacked in an upstairs closet.
