Five people have been killed in a shooting at a home in eastern Texas, according to local officials, but only few details are now available. The call requested a response by the sheriff's office and Allegiance EMS to the site of an assault involving multiple victims.

Emergency responders reacted to a call around 10:30 a.m., according to Polk County Chief Deputy Sheriff Byron Lyons, The Associated Press reported.

The sheriff's office said its detectives are investigating along with the Texas Rangers and would not confirm whether they believe the case is a murder suicide.

15-month-old Ranley Horn was found outside the home with gunshot wounds.
