A teenager stabbed three people, including an infant, then was shot by a sheriff's deputy in east Harris County. The 19-year-old suspect that was shot dead does live in the house with the three other victims, including a man, woman and an infant girl. It all started around 7:30pm Wednesday night when a resident noticed her neighbor stumbling out of the house with stab wounds.

Shortly after that, the teenager walked out of the house with a knife. Deputies say inside the house, he stabbed two other people.

As the suspect walked out into the street, a deputy arrived and demanded him to drop the weapon. The deputy said the teen ignored the command.

"That suspect was carrying a knife. The deputy got out of his car and asked the suspect to drop the knife multiple times," said Christina Garza of the Harris County Sheriff's Office.

We're told the suspect was shot at least five times by the deputy. The teen was DOA at LBJ Hospital.

As for the male homeowner, he is now in critical condition. The woman and baby girl's conditions are unknown.
