    Suspect charged with capital murder after 8 found dead in home


    49-year-old suspect allegedly shot at deputies before standoff ensued


    HARRIS COUNTY, Texas – David Conley has been charged with capital murder after eight people were found dead in a northwest Harris County home.

    Conley was arrested Saturday evening after a standoff with police in the 2200 block of Falling Oaks, not far from Veterans Memorial and Fallbrook Drive, after Harris County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the home for a welfare check.

    After the standoff, deputies found five children and three adults dead inside the home.

    The sheriff’s office will be holding a 3 p.m. press conference to provide more information.

    HCSO Spokesman Thomas Gilliland says when deputies arrived, no one responded at the front door. They then received more information that indicated a man in the home was wanted on a warrant for aggravated assault on a family member.

    The sergeant on the scene called for a High Risk Operations Unit, similar to SWAT, to help make entry and investigate. While the call was being placed, deputies surrounded the home, and they spotted the body of a juvenile through a window.

    At that point, the sergeant and three deputies forced their way in, and Conley began shooting, the sheriff's office says. Deputies pulled back and waited for the HROU and a negotiator to arrive.

    Authorities established contact with the Conley, and after more than an hour he came outside and surrendered without further incident.

    The bodies of eight people were found in the home, Gilliland said.

    "At this time we have what appears to be five children and three adults," said Gilliland. "Ages and genders we do not have, and cause of death we do not have. The medical examiner will have to determine a cause of death."

    It's not yet clear what the relationship was between the Conley and the victims, and a motive for the crime has not been determined.

    "Homicide detectives have taken over the operation along with our crime scene unit. Due to the amount of victims and the proximity to the people in the house, it'll be a scene that's going on for a while," Gilliland said.

    Neighbors woke up Sunday morning in disbelief about the tragic scene nearby.

    "I cannot believe it," said Adela Ramirez. "I am in horrific shock."

    Gilliland said it’s equally difficult of deputies.

    "It's a hard job being a patrolman in this town, and our deputies do a yeoman's job every day, but when they're forced to see some of the most horrific things along this nature, especially of children, and someone so callous could do something like this to children - we have our family assistance coming out to talk to our deputies and help them decompress," said Gilliland.

    The shooter always kills himself or does suicide by cop. Why is he still alive?

    If he killed eight black people, no one will have a word to say about this.

    The important question is what are the police guilty of?

    :scratch: Are you under the impression there wasn't many, including very recent, murders by crazy non-white guys?

    Looks like everyone was dead by the time the cops arrived, another guy with a lengthy criminal history out on the street:

    Atlanta Journal Constitution:

    Details of the crime:
    Police attempted to conduct a welfare check at a home in Harris County. When no one would come to the door, and being informed that a man inside had an outstanding warrant for aggravated assault of a family member, police called in a special response unit. After spotting a dead body inside the house, deputies entered the home, and the suspect allegedly started shooting. The deputies pulled back, and a hostage negotiator was able to get the suspect to surrender.


    The suspect: The suspect has been identified as David Conley, 49. He was taken into custody by the Harris County Sheriff’s Office. The suspect’s motive for the crimes has not been determined. Conley has been charged with multiple counts of capital murder.

    Suspect’s criminal record: According to the Houston Chronicle, the suspect’s criminal history is lengthy and includes incidents of domestic violence. In July, Conley was accused of slamming a woman’s head into a refrigerator. The address of that incident is the same as where the eight bodies were found.

    In 2013, Conley was accused of assaulting the same woman who was the victim in the July 2015 case. She received an emergency protective order at that time.

    A sampling of Conley's criminal record finds that he was convicted of felony retaliation in 2002 and a drug possession charge in 1994.

    The victims: Eight victims were found inside the home, including five children and three adults. Their relationship to Conley has not been established at this time. Their cause of death has not yet been determined. Neighbors told KPRCthat they knew the children, and that they were good kids who didn’t want to spend time at home.

    A little tongue in cheek. Whites do seem to lead in this category. With a few exceptions like Colin ferguson and that sniper dude.

    It's amazing that an armed man who killed 8 people AND shot at police could be taken into custody without killing him. I'd say someone did something right. So why do unarmed people who dare to argue with cops over bullshit end up dead if this is what police are capable of?
