WALL, Texas (AP) - A West Texas man has been arrested after his estranged wife and her brother were fatally shot and his sister-in-law was wounded.

Tom Green County Sheriff David Jones says Brian Jones Berry of Wall was being held Monday on a murder charge with bond set at $500,000.

Berry was arrested late Sunday during a traffic stop in Andrews, about 170 miles away, with his 7-year-old daughter and 9-year-old son. An Amber Alert was issued for the youngsters, who were unharmed.

Jones says deputies Sunday night responded to a domestic disturbance at Berry's former home. Jones says 36-year-old Keri Berry of Wall, who lives at the residence, and 31-year-old Brandon Block of San Angelo were shot to death.

Jones says Block's wife, 26-year-old Susan Block, was hospitalized Monday in critical condition.
