Murder-suicide on Sunday afternoon.
An 11-year-old girl was shot to death by her father, who then committed suicide, police say.

Jacqueline Shaikh was killed by her father, Sardar Shaikh, 47, on the southwest wide of town Sunday afternoon about 1 p.m., HPD says.

The elder Shaikh also shot Jacqueline's sister, Vivian, 14, and her mother, Maria Isabel Gorena, 43. Both are in critical condition at Ben Taub General Hospital.

Gorena had called 911 and said "her husband had shot her and the couple's two children," HPD says, at their apartment in the 6100 block of Reims.

"Responding officers found suspect Shaikh deceased in front of the residence with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest," HPD says. "Officers found Jacqueline deceased inside. Paramedics transported Vivian and Maria to the hospital, where Vivian is being treated for multiple gunshot wounds and Maria is being treated for a gunshot wound to the back."

There is no motive for the shooting. Anyone with additional information is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3200.
