The Texas shooter who allegedly shot and killed six of his family members, collapsed in court after murder charges against him were read.

Haskell got back up but collapsed again soon after. He was then taken out of the courtroom in a wheelchair, reports the Associated Press. He's currently being treated in jail.

On Wednesday, Haskell broke into his ex-wife's sister's home, tied up the family of seven that included four children, and shot them execution-style. 

The children were aged four, seven, nine, and 13. They are believed to be the child of Haskell's relatives.

The lone survivor was 15-year-old Cassidy Stay, who played dead until police arrived.

Cassidy then called 911 and told the operator that Haskell was on his way to kill her grandparents, which proved to be crucial in arresting him.

The cops managed to chase his car and stop him from killing any more people.
