5 Including Kid Shot Dead “Almost Execution Style” In US’ Texas

Texas: The local sheriff reported on Saturday that police were looking for a shooter suspected of killing five Hondurans, including an eight-year-old kid, in a residence in Texas, in the most recent mass shooting to occur in the country.

According to US media, the victims had urged the shooter to stop firing his AR-15-style weapon into a neighbouring yard as they tried to put a baby to sleep.

Around 11:30 PM on Friday, authorities responded to a report of “harassment” and found what San Jacinto County Sheriff Greg Capers described as a horrifying scene.

The victims, who ranged in age from eight to forty, were scattered around from the front door of the house to a bedroom inside. Two of the corpses, both women, were discovered laying on top of two children who had survived the carnage.

He said all of the deceased had been shot “from the neck up almost execution style, basically in the head”.

He mentioned that the shooter is from Mexico and that the authorities think they know who he is.

Later, the sheriff’s office posted on its Facebook page that they believed the shooter had left the county.

The public was urged to remain indoors until the man is found.
