BELLVILLE, Texas (AP) - One person was held for questioning after five bodies were found at a home in Bellville.
The Austin County Sheriff's Office on Monday declined to provide additional information. A message left by The Associated Press was not immediately returned.
A news release said deputies around 2:15 p.m. Sunday responded to a residence, where the bodies of four adults and one child were discovered. Names of the victims and whether they are related were not released.
Texas Rangers are assisting. Department of Public Safety spokesman Tom Vinger could provide no additional details Monday.
Bellville is a town of about 4,000, located 55 miles northwest of Houston.
The area drew attention in August with the shooting death of a physician at his ranch. Two suspects were arrested days later and charged with killing Dr. Jorge Mario Gonzalez of Houston.
