Police: Teens Killed Family in Gruesome Suicide Pact


ALLEN, TX – An apparent murder-suicide pact left six members of a family dead in an Allen, TX home.

According to the Allen Police Department, officers discovered the gruesome scene around 1:00 a.m. on Monday when they visited the home in response to a welfare concern.

Inside, officers located six victims with gunshot wounds.  The deceased included one grandparent, two parents, and three children.

"It looks like two teenage sons entered into an agreement that they were going to commit suicide and that they were going to take their family members with them," said Allen Police Sgt. Jon Felty.

The family has not been identified at this time, but authorities confirmed they had emigrated from Bangladesh.
