A man was in custody Saturday morning in connection with a woman's death in southwest Houston.

Officers were called to a home on Vendi at Arnage late Friday evening. When they arrived, a man briefly opened the door with a weapon in his hand before barricading himself inside.

Police quickly set up a perimeter, and the man -- identified as Gustavo Andres Vasquez, 34 -- eventually surrendered without incident.

Investigators said they then went inside the home where they found 31-year-old Anges Whitaker Vasquez dead from multiple gunshot wounds.

Family members tell us the man and woman were husband and wife.

The man was arrested and now faces a murder charge.
