Texas authorities say they’ve found five members from one family — three children and two adults — dead inside their home.

The three children are all younger than 12, police said, NBC reported.

A man reported the deaths late Sunday. The bodies were found inside the home near Rice, Texas, a town about 44 miles outside Dallas.

“I don’t care where you are,” said Navarro County Sheriff Elmer Tanner said, to NBC Dallas-Fort Worth. “Any time there’s five losses of lives in one location, that’s shocking and traumatic. It’s a horrible, horrible thing to see, witness or be a part of.”

Police don’t think there are any murder suspects at large. A spokesman for the responding police unit told NBC that officers had “been to this location in the past,” but did not provide other details.

Police scheduled a press conference to give additional information about the deaths on Monday.
