Three teenagers were found dead in a home in the Houston area Tuesday in what the Harris County sheriff said appeared to be a double-suicide attempt.
Two girls and a boy were found dead in a home near Crosby, northeast of Houston, by a family member looking for one of the teens, Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said.
The teens had signs of trauma and a firearm believed to be connected was found inside the home, he said.
"We continue as if at first glance it is most likely a double murder and suicide," Gonzalez said.
The identities of the teens have not been released and the relationship between them was not immediately clear, Gonzalez said.
The investigation is in its early stages and the motive is not known, Gonzalez said. The homeowner was away traveling, he said
Gonzalez said there is no threat to the public. He called the situation tragic.
"Our condolences go out to all family members," he said.
