Texas - Houston SWAT Converge On George H.W. Bush Doctor's Killer

SWAT teams in Houston, Texas are surrounding the home Thursday night of a man suspected of killing the doctor of former President George H.W. Bush. Investigators have charged 65-year-old Joseph James Pappas with the murder of Dr. Mark Hausknecht, a Houston cardiologist who once served as the personal doctor of George H.W. Bush.

Police were tipped off by a neighbor who reported seeing an open gate at Pappas' home in the Westbury neighborhood of Houston. SWAT teams have begun to converge on the home after the same neighbor also reported spotting someone they believe resembled Pappas. Authorities have warned that Pappas is believed to be armed and dangerous.

Houston police have been investigating whether Pappas tried to sell various weapons online in the days after the fatal shooting of Hausknecht on July 20. Hausknecht was riding his bike when he was shot three times and investigators say that Pappas was also on a bike and the shots "took some skill".

Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo reported Wednesday that investigators believe Pappas' motive may have been revenge for his mother who died on Hausknecht's operating table over 20 years ago. Minutes ago HPD offered an update on the situation during a press conference:
