Suspect in the murders of the Thanksgiving Dinner arrested. Police say a man wanted in connection with the shooting deaths of his ex-wife and another man at a Thanksgiving dinner in a Texas house on Friday night has been taken into custody.
According to Houston police Assistant Chief Patricia Cantu, the gunman also gravely injured two other people during the shooting, one of them being a 15-year-old kid.

Cantu claimed that when the shooter entered the house through the rear door and started shooting, the residents had just finished their Thanksgiving dinner. According to her, “the suspect discharged numerous bullets and even reloaded his pistol at the site.”
“This is a terrible situation since Thanksgiving is when people should be spending time with their relatives. In our prayers are the families “Added she. Houston police declined to provide any information about the arrest or the shooter’s possible motivation when contacted by Newsweek because the killings are still being looked into. Newsweek was informed by a department official that this was a “domestic violence incident.”
The Gun Violence Archive (GVA), a nonprofit organization that keeps tabs on shootings nationwide, recently released data showing that there have been over 600 mass shootings in the United States this year. According to the organization, the United States will top 600 for the third year in 2022.
A mass shooting is defined by GVA as an incident in which four or more people—excluding the shooter—are shot or killed. Six victims were killed by a Walmart manager on Tuesday while they were having a meeting in the break room at a store in Chesapeake, Virginia.
When police arrived at the store moments later, they discovered Andre Bing, 31, dead. Police think he committed suicide by shooting himself in the head. According to the authorities, Bing had a handgun and multiple magazines of ammo.
On Saturday, a gunman inside Club Q in Colorado opened fire with a long rifle, resulting in another mass shooting that left five people dead and more than a dozen injured. Anderson Lee Aldrich, 22, was eventually identified as the suspect by authorities.
One member of the LGBTQ community in Colorado Springs claims that the massacre at the club has left individuals “broken.” “The only LGBTQ space in Colorado Springs was Club Q, and now we don’t even have that. What will we do next? How can we get past this? We cannot. We’re broken. We’re damaged, “According to Joshua Thurman, 34, who spoke with The Denver Post’s Shelly Bradbury on Sunday.
