A deputy-involved shooting in northwest Houston left one person dead and four others in custody.

Investigators say it started as a road rage incident.

The Harris County Sheriffs Office confirms one woman in her 20s was killed.

The incident started in the Spring area near I-45 and Airtex and ended at an apartment complex near Kuykendahl just north of FM-1960.



Investigators say the suspects drove their F-150 directly at U.S. Marshals when they initially attempted to stop at a hotel. A few of the Marshals were hit but suffered only minor injuries.

The Marshals and one deputy opened fire on the suspects but they took off.
The suspects attempted to stop a second time at the Ashford Santa Cruz apartments where they drove through a gate.

Deputies say they again drove at investigators.

Deputies fired on the suspects for a second time, hitting the woman.

The chase ended when the truck came to a stop in the back of the apartment complex.

Four people inside the truck were taken into custody.
