HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Harris County authorities have identified Danny Lee Neelys, 39, as the suspect they say forced their way into a home and killed a father and his teenage son in northwest Houston late Saturday night.

Deputies got a call about a shooting at a home on Atwood Grove Lane near Smiling Wood Lane around 11:30pm. When they arrived, they found the bodies of Keidric Jamal Jelks Sr., 42, and his son, Keidric Jamal Jelks Jr., 15.

Officials say the man was Jelks' brother-in-law. He is a 39 year-old black male, 5'10" tall, and weighing approximately 200 lbs. He is considered armed and dangerous.
