8 people found dead in Texas home

10 August 2015, 09:12

Washington - Police found the bodies of five children and three adults in a Texas home after a standoff that ended with a man's surrender, US media reported on Sunday.

The eight people were found in a Houston-area house after deputies from the Harris County Sheriff's Office were called to the residence at about 21:00 on Saturday, spokesperson Thomas Gilliland told the KHOU news channel.

A 49-year-old man inside the house began shooting after deputies forced their way into the home, KHOU reported.

The officers pulled back and began negotiating with the man, who eventually surrendered.

KHOU reported that a man in the home was wanted on a warrant for aggravated assault on a family member.

No additional information was immediately available and a call to the sheriff's office early on Sunday went unanswered.
