A Texas man is dead and the infant he previously abducted amidst a violent domestic rampage is now safe, law enforcement officers say.

Obinna Dwayne Igbokwe, 41, was identified as the suspect in a double shooting incident that left his wife critically injured and her mother dead on Wed., June 1. He has since shot and killed himself, according to Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office.

Law enforcement’s involvement began around 7:30 p.m. on the night in question when MCSO deputies arrived at a residence in Spring, Texas. There they found that Tangela Igbokwe, the deceased suspect’s wife, had been shot point blank in the head. She survived and is currently in critical condition. Her mother, Linda Larkins, who was also shot in the head, was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to Houston-based ABC affiliate KTRK, sheriff’s deputies said they believe the man shot his wife after she asked him for a divorce — and that the shooting occurred in front of his 14-year-old son. However, in a media advisory, MCSO spokesperson Steve Squier clarified that law enforcement believe “Igbokwe shot his wife and her mother after a dispute about child custody.”

After the gunfire, Obinna Igbokwe abducted and fled with his his 3-month-old son Mansa Igbokwe, prompting an AMBER Alert.

The suspect left the scene in a 2008 white Honda Accord and was last seen near I-45 and Highway 105, deputies said.

He was apparently heading north.

Right around midnight on June 2, 2022, MCSO detectives were contacted by officers with the Corsicana Police Department who had just come into possession of an infant baby boy.

The boy was Mansa.

Corsicana is roughly one hour south of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex and nearly three hours north…
