Man dressed as Santa shoots 6 dead in Grapevine, Texas

Police in Grapevine, Texas say that a man who shot dead 6 people before turning the gun on himself was dressed as Santa at the time. The victims’ identities have not been revealed, but they are believed to have been aged between 15 to 58.

It’s not clear what caused the apparent murder-suicide. The family were apparently celebrating Christmas at home before the male relative turned up dressed as Santa and opened fire. Police responded on Sunday to a 911 call that had no-one on the other end, and discovered the bodies.

No-one in the area reported hearing gunshots, but many of the nearby apartments are apparently empty. Police are now trying to piece together what happened in an attempt to determine what caused the shooting.
