6 people killed in apparent murder-suicide at Allen home, police say

The incident was contained to the home and there is no threat to the community, police said.

Six people were found dead in an Allen home early Monday in what police said is an apparent murder-suicide.

Officers responded about 1 a.m. to a call about a welfare check in the 1500 block of Pine Bluff Drive.

The call came from a family friend who said someone at the home was suicidal, police said.

When officers arrived, they found a family of six dead inside the home.

Police did not release the identities of the dead but said they were two teenage brothers, a sister, their father and mother, and a grandmother. The youngest was 19, police said.

Police said they believe the brothers are the suspects.

“Apparently two brothers made an agreement to commit suicide and ended up taking the entire family with them,” said Sgt. Jon Felty, a police spokesman.

A social-media account that belongs to a 19-year-old who lived at the home contained a link to a lengthy suicide note.

Police believe that the incident happened sometime Saturday. They did not say how the family had died.

The incident was contained to the home and there is no threat to the community, police said.
