BEAUMONT, Texas (AP) — Police in Orange are investigating the shooting deaths of four people at a home on the city’s east side. The authorities found the victims early Monday morning, with all four appearing to have been fatally shot, according to Sgt. Keith Longlois of the Orange Police Department.
The police were called to the scene at 7:51 a.m. Monday morning, and the deaths are being investigated as homicides. However, police have assured the public that there is currently no danger to the community.
As of now, the police have not released the names or ages of the victims, nor have they disclosed any information about their potential relationship with each other. A search warrant is being awaited to conduct a full investigation of the home where the incident occurred.
The crime scene tape can be seen surrounding the small wood frame home, and family members have gathered outside the residence as the police work on the investigation. Officials have indicated that they plan to release more information in the coming hours as the investigation progresses.
This is a developing story, and further updates will be provided as more confirmed information becomes available.
