UPDATE: Two children abducted this morning in Houston have been found safe.

The man who is accused of taking them from their home, and fatally shooting his girlfriend's ex-boyfriend, has been arrested, deputies said in a tweet:

This morning, an Amber Alert has been issued for two children, including a baby, believed to be with a murder suspect and his girlfriend in northwest Harris County, ABC 13 in Houston reported.

The alert went out around 9:45 a.m. Monday for 9-year-old DJ, possibly known as Dominic Wilson, and 11-month-old Kalis. Authorities did not have information on the last name of the children, the station reports. Police say the children were taken from an apartment after a shooting that left a man dead.

Officials say the suspect and his girlfriend left with DJ and Kalis in a 2019 black Cadillac sedan with paper tags and partial tag number 93060. The fight allegedly happened between the suspect and the girlfriend's ex-boyfriend; the suspect allegedly shot and killed the ex-boyfriend.

Deputies believe DJ and Kalis are with the suspected shooter. According to officials, DJ is the girlfriend's son, but the baby is not her child, ABC13 reports.
