Fatal shooting in Kingwood involved man with Cleveland ties

A man with ties to the Cleveland area was taken into custody at a home on Vista Ridge Drive in the Kingwood area on Sunday after fatally shooting his wife while she reportedly was on the phone with a 911 operator.

The man, who Houston Police Department officials have not publicly named, was involved in an hours-long standoff with SWAT that began around 5 p.m. Sunday.

Cleveland ISD Superintendent Stephen McCanless confirmed to Bluebonnet News that the unnamed man is employed by the District as a special education chair.
