A North Texas mother is hospitalized after her ex-husband arrived at her home early Wednesday and opened fire, injuring her and killing their three children and her boyfriend before turning the gun on himself, sheriff’s deputies say.
The identities and ages of the victims have not yet been confirmed and investigators have not speculated as to what led the woman’s ex-husband to slaughter the family.
The article goes on to state the following:
The Ponder Volunteer Fire Department said Wednesday morning they were called to a home in the 600 block of Lone Star Park Lane at about 8:30 a.m. Shortly before arrival, firefighters were told there were multiple victims inside the home and that several ambulances had been requested.
Officials with the Denton County Sheriff’s Department confirmed to NBC 5 later in the day that the five people found dead inside the home were three children, their mother’s boyfriend and their father, the suspected shooter.
The mother of the children was also shot but survived the shooting. She was transported to Medical City Denton in an unknown condition.

The mass shooting in Texas today that left 5 dead and 1 injured looks to be yet another murder suicide. There have been 100 mass shootings in the US so far this year, and it’s only May. https://t.co/mODLoRKEbn
