Texas man shoots dead ex-wife's three children, boyfriend, police say

Officials said the woman's ex-husband entered the three-bedroom home and opened fire on her, her boyfriend, and three children, and then killed himself.

Five people were found fatally shot inside a Ponder home Wednesday morning.

Hinojosa said in a press conference that the shooter, who was male, is among the dead. "Had I known the man was going to go in there and do that, I would have stopped".

Investigators said they were not looking for a suspect and were treating the shootings as a murder-suicide investigation. Five were deceased. The sixth person, the ex-wife, was taken to Medical City Denton by ground ambulance, the fire department said.

Firefighters were initially told that there was a self-inflicted gunshot victim.

A vehicle is towed as Denton County Sheriff's officers investigate the crime scene.

Police did not release the ages or identities of any of the victims.

Neighbors were shocked as word quickly spread up and down the street what had happened inside the home. Hinojosa said he didn't know her condition but he didn't think her wounds were life-threatening. "Regretful, regretful really sad pray for them, pray for the family, pray for the neighborhood".
