HOUSTON– Three teens were found dead in a home northeast of Houston in what authorities believe was a murder-suicide.

Initial findings showed one of the teens killed themself after killing the other two, according to Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez.

The bodies were found Tuesday afternoon by “a family member” who lives next door and “was trying to locate someone,” the Sheriff said.

He said two females and one male were dead, but did not announce their ages.
