Three people were found dead in a home in northwestern Tarrant County on Monday, authorities said.
Authorities were called to a home in the 1500 block of Red Oak Circle in Azle, near Eagle Mountain Lake, just before 5 p.m., according to Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office spokesman David McClelland. A family member had asked for a welfare check after not hearing from the residents for more than a day.
Deputies found the bodies of two men and one woman inside. All three had been shot.
The three people were believed to be relatives, but officials did not release their names or relationships to one another.
McClelland said authorities were investigating the case as a triple homicide.
“We’re going to look at all the evidence and make a determination on where that leads us as the case unfolds,” he said.
He said no suspects had been identified, but authorities didn’t believe there was any threat to the public.
“We do want to stress to the community to make sure they stay calm,” McClelland said. “At this point we do not think there is any danger to the community.”
