    TX - Brian Gilson kills 3 yo daughter, himself to avoid giving custody to ex-wife

    CONROE, Texas A man shot and killed his 3-year-old daughter before turning the gun on himself Friday evening. The man was served papers to give up custody of his daughter to his ex-wife by deputies with the Montgomery County Precinct 3 Constable's Office...

    The man didn't answer the door at first, then later after he walked out of his apartment, a deputy approached the man, who then pulled out a gun and pointed it at both his head and chest. Conroe SWAT and police were called in, and after about a 20-minute standoff, the man shot himself in the head. When deputies entered his apartment, they found the 3-year-old girl with a gunshot wound to her head.

    The Conroe man who shot and killed his 3-year-old daughter before committing suicide Friday was a military veteran coping with posttraumatic stress disorder, according to the Conroe Police Department, which had responded to a domestic issue at his residence less than two weeks ago.“It’s a terrible scene,” Sgt. James Waller said. “Horrible.”

    Conroe police arrived at The Dominion Apartments, located in the 15000 block of Interstate 45 South at the corner of FM 1488, after deputies with the Precinct 3 Constable’s Office tried to serve a writ of attachment to Brian David Gilson, 45, in order to take possession of his little girl and to issue a protective order. “Those are issued when there is a family violence involved and they believe there might be further family violence,” Waller said. “It’s something the actual victim petitions to court through the district attorney’s office for a protective order.”

    CPD responded to the man’s residence only 10 days ago, the only call to the residence in the past year, Waller said.

    It sounds like she was with him as part of whatever custody and visitation schedule they had but he found it was the last time he would have her. The protective order was being served at the same time and I'd imagine the little girl was included in it.

    A Texas father who was about to be informed that he lost custody of his 3-year-old daughter allegedly fatally shot the child before killing himself during a police standoff in Conroe Friday night, according to a report.

    it sounds to me as if the dv incident occurred 10 days ago and the wife probably left the home at that time and he refused to let her take the kid. she went to court and got the proper paperwork and the cops came to serve him and this occurred.
