EMORY, Texas — Authorities say they have found the bodies of an adult and two children at a rural East Texas home where they had gone on a report of a shooting and a fire.
Rains County Chief Deputy Kurt Fischer says one adult also was hospitalized early Saturday, and two people have been taken into custody. He says police received reports of a fire and a shooting at the house around 4 a.m.
This is on the news as I type this. It appears everyone was shot with a shotgun. I grew up in this small town. I think the populationg was less than 600 when I left, some 35 years ago.
