Family-induced tensions run high during the holidays, but one family in Texas appears to have taken this to extremes. Seven bodies were found dead, shot during a Christmas gathering. The shooter appears not only to be among the fallen family members, but to have been dressed as Santa Claus at the time.
The identities of the deceased have yet to be released, and investigators are still working on finding out what motivated this nightmarish turn during an apparently friendly family gathering. The shooting—which involved only adults—occurred right after presents were opened Christmas day.
