Gunman ‘dressed as Santa’ killed family
The gunman who shot dead six relatives before killing himself at a family Christmas celebration in Texas was dressed as Santa Claus, police say.
Investigators found four women and three men, aged 15 to 59, dead among unwrapped presents and Christmas decorations in the flat’s living room.
Two handguns were also recovered at the scene in the city of Grapevine, near Dallas, on Sunday.
Investigators do not know what prompted the killings.
Grapevine police Lieutenant Todd Dearing told the BBC that the suspected shooter was a 56-year-old man.
He said the gunman’s victims were aged 15, 19, 22, 55, 58 and 59.
No-one was found alive at the home.
