According to KXII, the CBS affiliate in Sherman, Texas, police said that neighbor went inside the home, confronted the man holding the two infants in the tub and shot him twice.

Investigators said Windham left an auction and followed a driver down Mississippi Highway 356. Later, Windam got out of her car carrying a weapon. When she got out of her car, the person she'd followed opened fire, killing her.
The shooter's identity has not been released because he is not facing charges.A witness, Sarah Huggins, said she found Windam in the ditch and immediately told her daughter to call 911.
Huggins described the scene as frightening.
"I was fearing for my life because the shooter was standing behind the door," Huggins said. "I didn't know if he had the gun and was fixing to shoot us or what."
Alcorn Sheriff Ben Caldwell said Windam and the shooter had collided before.
"This is an ongoing feud between these two families taking place over the last several years," Caldwell said.
Investigators said the shooter's actions were justified on the grounds of self-defense.

“We were asleep, and I thought I had heard something but I wasn’t for sure,” Lee remembered. “I thought I was just dreaming something, and then I heard a big bang again.”
She knew something was not right.
“I got up and came running through the hallway and my gun was sitting on the dog cage, and the guy was standing in the kitchen. He had just busted my door open,” Lee said.
Lee then grabbed her .45-caliber handgun and her shotgun.
“I put the gun in his face and asked him if there was something I could do for him, and he was gone just that quick,” Lee said. “I chased him out the back door trying to look at the tag number on the car, something I could describe other than just him.”
Within an hour, Madison County deputies arrested Quentin Childress, 20, of Jackson, Jaylon Chiles, 18, of Biloxi, Miss., Amar Johnson, 21, of Jackson, Kendrick McMullin, 19, of Jackson, and a juvenile male. Each is charged with aggravated burglary.

Lake Worth, FL

5/3/17 Palm Beach Post.  An extraordinarily hard to understand story:

  A homeless woman who reportedly used drugs outside a Lake Worth home was at the heart of a fight late Monday that ended with one man being shot and another repeatedly being stabbed, Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office records state.
The woman called a friend some time after 10 p.m. Monday and said she’d been punched by Gary Steven White outside a rental community his father manages on Federal Highway. White’s father, who shares his son’s first and last name, told authorities his son began arguing with the woman over her alleged drug use.
Moments after the call, the woman’s friend heard a noise outside his home on North M Street, just west of North Federal Highway.
The man opened his door and saw two men outside the fence. The younger man, the 47-year-old White, entered the home, despite the resident’s orders to stay outside.
The resident shot White in the abdomen. White screamed for his “daddy,” records state.
“Daddy, he shot me,” White reportedly yelled.
His father came running. The older White and the resident struggled over the gun, the resident said, and eventually the resident threw down the firearm.
The resident felt a pain in his back. He then realized he was being stabbed, the police report said.
White (the younger) is being charged.
