A man is suspected of walking into a home and shooting and killing his ex-wife during Thanksgiving dinner, according to reports.

In addition to his ex-wife, the man is suspected of shooting and killing another male in the home, and critically injuring two other people.

FOX26 reporter Matthew Seedorff took to Twitter on Thursday to explain the situation.

"A gunman walked into a home on the 1500 block of Baggett Lane in NW Houston and shot 4 people. Two of the victims are dead. The shooter got away on foot," Seedorff wrote in a tweet.

In a follow up tweet, he added: "Police say an adult man and woman are dead. A second adult man and a 15-year-old boy are critically injured and being taken to a hospital."

Giving further details, he tweeted: "Update: Police say a family had been celebrating Thanksgiving.

"A woman's ex-husband walked into the home's backdoor and started shooting. The woman and another man were killed.

"Two others are now hospitalized. The gunman hasn't been identified and got away."

Houston Police Assistant Chief Patricia Cantu also spoke to reporters while at the scene and gave an update.

"Today we find ourselves at the 1500 block of Bagette Lane. Officers received a call at 9:18 p.m. in regard to a shooting in progress, officers arrived at 9:23 along with the Houston Fire Department," she said.

"The officers entered residence and found four people shot inside the house," Cantu said.

"Two of them were declared deceased, we have got one 15-year-old shot, he is now in a stable condition, and we had another male who is in the hospital right now in a critical condition."

She went on to say that the people in the home had just finished eating and were celebrating Thanksgiving when the gunman came in through the backdoor and started shooting.

She said: "The suspect discharged multiple rounds and even reloaded his weapon at the scene.

"We do know it is the ex-husband of the deceased, we don't know where he is at, we don't have his name yet, that is going to come out further [down the line].

"We are going to be asking for the public and the media's help later on to capture this man that killed two people in this house and injured two.

"This is a very sad situation, it is Thanksgiving, people are supposed to celebrate with their families. We do know that this was a domestic-related incident. We are praying for the families."
