Man accused of killing ex, her boyfriend at soccer tournament


A man allegedly fatally shot his pregnant ex-wife and her boyfriend at a Texas soccer tournament on Sunday morning before taking his own life, a report said.

The deadly 10 a.m. shooting in the parking lot of the Matias Almeyda Training Center in Harris County occurred as the woman’s two children were playing in the tournament, the Houston Chronicle reported, citing police and relatives.

The woman, 28, was rushed to the hospital, where she and her unborn child were pronounced dead.

Her boyfriend, 35, was declared dead on scene.

Relatives of the woman who were at the soccer facility, which was hosting about 100 people at the time, identified the shooter to authorities as her ex-husband.

Investigators said he texted relatives that he was going to kill himself before being found with a self-inflicted gunshot wound two hours later.
