Watch: Alleged gunman in Houston massacre passes out in court

HARRIS COUNTY, Tex. - The man accused of a mass shooting in Texas earlier this week appeared in court Friday and passed out.

As Ronald Lee Haskell made his first appearance before a judge, he began to shake and then dropped to the floor.

Deputies helped him to his feet, but Haskell collapsed again.

Deputies then put him in a chair and rolled him out of the courtroom.

Authorities say on Wednesday Haskell shot seven family members of his ex-wife, killing six of them.

A 15-year-old victim survived and called police.

After a long police chase and standoff, Haskell surrendered.
