Texas murder suicide: Vonnie Le Bui identified as mother who killed son, James Nguyen and Virginia Minh Trang Luu

Police in Meadows Place, Texas stated that a mom shot a female and male victim at a Meadows Place home before turning the gun on herself Tuesday, identifying the woman and her two victims.

Virginia Minh Trang Luu, 25, and James Thien Nguyen, 16, each died of a gunshot wound to the head, the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release.

Authorities said they believe Vonnie Le Bui, 44, killed the two younger victims and then shot herself in the head.

There was a toddler and a baby at the home at the time, but they were unharmed, police say.

Police responded to the incident after a male caller, who said he was returning to his home, called 911 around 6:20 p.m. Tuesday to report finding his wife, younger brother and mother dead.

James was a student at Kempner High School. Read the full statement released by the school’s principal.

A local church, Sugar Grove Church of Christ, plans to hold a prayer vigil Thursday evening, according to a Facebook event posted online. Doors were scheduled to open at 6 p.m.
