Man Accused of Killing Neighbors, Standoff Follows

A horrible scene and few answers in Houston County in East Texas. 

A man and woman are killed in their home, allegedly by their neighbor. It happened near Lovelady south of Crockett. 

911 got a call around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday from an 8-year old girl inside a house. She said someone was shooting.

When police got there, a man and woman were found dead.  But, a 14 year old boy was still alive. He was shot four times. The girl wasn't hurt.

Down the street, police zeroed on a neighbor, Barney Ronald Fuller. He was barricaded in his own home. It took nine hours for negotiators to talk him out. 

As of Wednesday afternoon, police haven't said why this happened.
