    Now they are saying Santa may have been the shooter.

    Police: Gunman in murder-suicide dressed as Santa

    GRAPEVINE, Texas (AP) — Six members of a Texas family apparently opened Christmas presents just before a relative dressed as Santa Claus showed up, opened fire and killed them before killing himself, police said Monday.

    Grapevine police spokesman Sgt. Robert Eberling said the shooter showed up in the Santa outfit shortly before gunfire erupted and was a member of the family. The identity of the shooter and the victims will be released after autopsies are conducted Monday, he said.

    Police went to the apartment midday Sunday after dispatchers received a phone call in which no one was on the line. They found four women and three men, aged 18 to 60, dead. A motive for the shootings remains unclear.

    I feel the holidays bring out the best and worst in people. I am always extra cautious this time of year.

    I'm willing to bet that the shooter was warped by drugs and/or alcohol.

    Santa's slain.

    Are there no safe places or times anymore?

    Violence hasn't changed, we simply have near-immediate access to virtually every report of it.

    100% truth there. This kind of thing isn't new, it's just that now, we all get to hear about it as it happens. The human animal has always been a vile a disgraceful creature. It did just become this way.

    Well, well, well, the Texas Christmas Day massacre of 7 people, including the killer, was a MUSLIM honor killing, after all. Bare Naked Islam

    Turns out "Santa" was a Muslim father performing an honor killing. Don't look for this in the mainstream media though.

    It too will be downplayed like the Fort Hood workplace violence incident.

    Gunman in Christmas Massacre Planted Gun on Victim: Police | NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth

    But forensic evidence shows that Zarei never fired a gun, Grapevine police told NBC 5. Police said Yazdanpanah planted the gun on Zarei before he turned the gun on himself.
