The news and stories that matter, delivered weekday mornings.

At least five people were killed Monday following a shooting at a home in rural Texas, authorities said.

Polk County sheriff's officials say two men were found dead inside the house while two women and the infant girl were discovered outside the residence.

Byron Lyons, chief deputy of the sheriff's office, said emergency responders received a call for help around 10:30 a.m. local time.

A woman, identified as the mother of Ashley, was found locked in the back bedroom.

It may have taken Campbell awhile to collect the prize, but at least it gave him time to think about how he wants to spend it. He claimed he'd fallen ill after his win, sometimes finding himself in so much pain he'd forgotten his life-changing victory.

"She [Delaney's mother] is being interviewed". Her son then called police to the scene.

"The scene is extremely fluid making it hard to release information", the sheriff said.

Childers would not say whether any of the deaths are believed to be suicide, but confirmed police are not seeking a suspect and there's no risk to the public.

The victims' bodies have been sent to a medical examiner for further investigation.
