A 41-year-old Nigerian, Obinna Igbokwe, on Wednesday night in Texas, United States, shot his wife, Tangela Igbokwe, killed her mother and fled to North Texas with their three-month-old son, Mansa, before finally killing himself.
Igbokwe lived in Spring, Montgomery County of Dallas, Texas.
The argument according to the police led to the shooting.
Igbokwe shot his wife and her mother point blank, in the head.
But her mother, Linda Larkins, who was also shot in the head was pronounced dead at the scene.
Obinna Igbokwe reportedly took their son and fled in a 2008 white Honda Accord.
The shooting happened in the 30120 block of Aldine Westfield Road around 7.30 p.m.
Since he did not return, police said they were contacted and learned the man left in a white passenger car.
At about 1.05 a.m., Ennis Police Department officers said they located the white Honda Igbokwe was driving and attempted to stop the vehicle.
After a short pursuit, the Honda stopped in a parking lot, where officers observed and heard a single gunshot come from the interior of the Honda.
Law enforcement officers began life-saving measures and summoned medical personnel, but due to the severity of the injury, authorities said Igbokwe succumbed to his wounds at a Dallas hospital at about 5.20 a.m.
Authorities said Mansa is safe and unharmed and has been reunited with his family.
“Our hearts are with the family affected by this tragic and horrific crime and we are working with the victims to ensure they receive support and assistance,” a Facebook post from MCSO said.
This investigation is being completed across multiple jurisdictions and involves the Corsicana Police Department, Ennis Police Department, Ellis County Sheriff’s Office, and the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office. CONTINUE READING…
