Raul Rodriguez

Kelly Danaher

HUFFMAN, Texas -- A teacher was killed and a firefighter was injured in a shooting at a home in Huffman, KPRC Local 2 reported.

Harris County sheriff's deputies said dozens of people were gathered for a birthday party when gunfire broke out in the 300 block of Oak Knoll Drive at about 12:30 a.m. Sunday.

"It was not a brawl," witness Virginia Lloyd said. "It was a birthday party for a 3-year-old."

Deputies said Raul Rodriguez, 44, who lives two homes down from the party, called the constable's office to complain about loud music coming from the home.

Investigators said the situation wasn't resolved to Rodriguez's satisfaction, so he took a gun, flashlight and video camera to the home.

Rodriguez got into an argument with the birthday child's father, Kelly Danaher, 36, officials said. It escalated and Rodriguez shot three people, investigators said.

Detectives said Danaher, who was a teacher and coach at Sorters Mill Elementary School in the New Caney Independent School District, suffered fatal wounds. Two others, Ricky Johnson, 43, and Marshall Stetson, 33, were seriously wounded.

Johnson, a Houston Fire Department senior captain, tried to subdue Rodriguez. According to his friends and family, Johnson was promoted to that position two weeks ago.

Other people restrained Rodriguez at the scene and he was arrested. He has been charged with murder.
