Authorities say five people died in a shooting Wednesday at a home in a rural town north of Fort Worth.

Hinojosa said residents who live near the home don't need to worry about an ongoing threat.

The Denton County Sheriff's Office and the Ponder Fire Department responded to the scene, and the Texas Rangers were called in to assist with the investigation.

Hinojosa said authorities had received a call of a murder in progress shortly before 8:30 a.m.at the residence.

Law enforcement agents investigate the home in Ponder, Texas, where five people were found dead on May 16, 2018. "Be assured that as a district we were taking precautionary measures and seeking information to ensure the most safe and uninterrupted school day possible". That one surviving victim was transported to Medical City Denton, but the individual's condition is still not known at this time.

No one seemed to know the family, but as one woman said, they'd seen them at the Dollar General or the gas station. "It shouldn't happen to nobody".
