Sugar Land police said that a man did shoot and kill his wife and son, and that he physically assaulted his adult daughter in San Marcos before committing suicide.

Police spokesman Doug Adolph said in a statement that the gun Richard Logan used to kill himself on Wednesday was the same gun used to shoot his wife, Diana, 48, multiple times and his 11-year-old son, Aaron, only once.

The shooting happened at the family’s home on the 82000 block of Evening Light Drive in Greatwood. Forensic tests are still pending.

Logan then drove to San Marcos, where his daughter goes to college at Texas State University and “choked out” his daughter, according to police. She did not report the incident to police.

Logan, 52, then drove to a business named TAS Environmental in Guadalupe County, eight miles from the Texas State campus and shot himself in his car. Police said that no motive has been revealed and the investigation is ongoing.

Logan was a pastor at River Pointe Church in Richmond before he started a non-profit venture called Attack Poverty in 2011.

“The Attack Poverty family is in shock to learn of the tragedy involving our Chief Executive Officer, Richard Logan and his family,” a statement on the Attack Poverty website said. “We are cooperating with investigators and waiting for more information as we try to process this loss with our staff, volunteers and community.

Please keep the Attack Poverty staff and all involved in your prayers.”

Sugar Land police conducted a welfare check on the home after Guadalupe County authorities informed them of Logan’s suicide. That’s when they discovered his wife and son were dead.

Aaron was a student at Campbell Elementary School in the Lamar Consolidated Independent School District.
