    A man named Francisco Oropeza shot and killed five people, including an 8-year-old boy, in Texas. The shooting started because of a noise complaint about gunfire. The suspect walked into his neighbour’s house and began shooting. Adults were declared dead at the scene while an eight-year-old died at a hospital. Two women victims used their bodies to shield two young children who survived. Three children found covered in blood in the home were taken to a hospital but found to be uninjured. The victims were shot above the neck at close range – “almost execution style.” Police are using dogs and a drone in the hunt for the suspect, who is believed to be hiding in a nearby forest.
