Seven people were shot and killed on Christmas while they were in a Grapevine apartment. The apartment belonged to a woman that recently left her husband and lived there with her two children
According to investigators, one man dressed as Santa Claus went to the apartment and shot six people before turning the gun on himself. The four women and three men that were shot were all related by either marriage or blood. It is unknown at this time if the man dressed as Santa was with them while they opened presents or he arrived later.
The man dressed as Santa lives two miles from the apartment in the home the family formerly lived together. At this time, the tragic incident looks like a domestic violence case, but police are still determining the timeline of the events.
Our thoughts are with everyone affected by the tragic shooting.
