Arlington Standoff

Earlier this week, a standoff in Arlington ended with a woman dead… and her estranged husband behind bars. A 7 and 10 year-old escaped from the house before the shooting started.

The saddest part is that two children are now without a mother.

This was the scene on the ground when I got to the scene. It was a traffic jam of emergency vehicles.

At Channel 5, we have a policy of not showing certain types of video. We all saw the SWAT team pulling the bloody woman from her home.  Officers rushed her into an ambulance….

and into a waiting helicopter. They were performing chest compressions on her on the stretcher.

When SWAT went into the house, Ronald Neal shot at them several times. His gun ran out of ammo, and officers took him down without deadly force. He now faces two counts of attempted capital murder (for shooting at police officers) and one count of murder.

Even though he’s in jail, those two kids are now without a mom.
