Officials: Multiple people dead in shooting at Texas home

PONDER, Texas — Authorities say multiple people have died in a shooting at a home in a rural town north of Fort Worth.

Denton County sheriff's Capt. Orlando Hinojosa says police responding Wednesday to a report of a burglary in progress found "several deceased individuals inside the house."

He declined to say just how many people were found dead in the home in Ponder, about 30 miles north of Fort Worth.

Hinojosa says authorities are not looking for a suspect and that residents are not in danger, but declined to elaborate.

One person at the home was hospitalized.

School Superintendent Bruce Yeager said in a statement that no students or district staff are listed as living at the home and that police told him there is no threat to any schools.
