Man allegedly shot ex-wife 4 times on the day of a child custody hearing

A man has been arrested after allegedly cutting off the power to the home of his ex-wife and their four children before breaking in through a window and shooting her four times -- all on the same day they were both scheduled to appear in court for a child custody hearing.

The incident occurred at approximately 3:30 a.m. on Monday, June 28, in the northwest suburbs of Houston, Texas, when the Harris County Sheriff’s Office was called to a home in response to a reported shooting and home invasion.

Authorities that a preliminary investigation revealed that Aaron B. Wright is alleged to have gone to the unlocked power box on the side of the home and cut off power to the house where his ex-wife, Andrea Wright, and their four children -- all between the ages of five and 12 -- were sleeping.

Police then allege that Aaron Wright broke into the home through a back window before finding Andrea Wright and shooting her four times, according to the report by The four children were sleeping in their beds at the time of the shooting, and none of them was injured.

Surveillance obtained shows the suspect and an accomplice approached Andrea Wright’s home on foot after allegedly driving there in his work truck and parking down the street. The pair can then be seen fleeing the scene in the opposite direction just minutes later. Deputies believe the second suspect is Wright’s new girlfriend.

“That guy has got to be crazy to do that in front of his kids, [try to] kill their mother, I mean there is something wrong with that guy,” a neighbour said in an interview following the incident.

According to Sheriff Gonzales, Aaron Wright was located just a few hours later and booked into the Harris County Jail on aggravated assault charges. It is unclear if his accomplice was also arrested when he was taken into custody on Monday. It is unclear if Aaron Wright has retained an attorney, and the investigation into the incident is currently ongoing.
