Texas Mother of 6 shot and killed by her Military recruiter husband

A Texas mother of six was shot and killed by her military recruiter husband while she was making a domestic violence complaint against him to Naval Criminal Investigative Service agents at their home, say authorities.

At 1:30 p.m. on Sept. 22, Takara Glenn Hightower, 34, was being interviewed by NCIS agents about allegations of domestic violence against her husband, Navy senior chief recruiter Greg Hightower, when he burst into their home in Atascocita, northeast of Houston, according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, the Navy Times reports.

Takara was shot and killed by her husband, NCIS spokesman Jeff Houston confirmed to PEOPLE in an email.

Takara was holding the couple’s baby when her husband shot her, Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said at a press conference.

“The NCIS Special Agent and second NCIS Special Agent on scene returned fire on Mr. Hightower, who managed to flee and drive away,” Houston said in an email to PEOPLE.

Greg raced to a relative’s apartment in northwest Houston. He died during a shootout there with sheriff’s deputies, according to the Houston Chronicle.

The baby Takara was holding and a toddler who was at the home during the incident were released to family members.
