From Staff Reports
An overnight shooting spree left four people dead, including a child, and three injured. The gunman is reported to have taken his own life. The Corsicana Police Department is calling the incident a quadruple homicide-suicide in Navarro County.
According to a press release from Corsicana Chief of Police Robert Johnson, on Feb. 5, at approximately 12:06 a.m., the Corsicana Police Department received a 911 call reporting that a known suspect had killed his (the suspect’s) family members.
Upon arrival, CPD officers located an adult male and adult female, deceased in their residence in the 2900 Block of W. Second Avenue. Both subjects had suffered gunshot wounds. A search of the residence revealed two additional gunshot victims. Both suffered gunshot wounds and were transported by air ambulance to a Dallas area trauma center.
The Navarro County Sheriff’s Department responded to a second location near the intersection of Garrity and Stroud Streets in Frost. 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.
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 Roane Road. At that time, CPD 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.
