Texas authorities responded to what’s known as a “welfare call” on Saturday night and ended up being involved in a gun battle with a man who is now suspected of killing as many as eight people. The police first saw something was wrong when they were called in to talk to David Conley, who had already been arrested previously for assaulting a family member. When they arrived, they found the body of a young child in the yard and decided to enter the home. After being fired upon, they retreated and called in hostage negotiators. Eventually, Conley surrendered but as the police were sweeping the home, they found seven more bodies, among them were four children and three adults.
Check out the video recounting the horrendous results of the initial call.
