Five killed, one injured after shooting at North Texas home

Man shoots ex-wife’s 3 children her boyfriend dead

The only survivor is the man's ex-wife, Amanda Simpson.

No one seemed to know the family, but as one woman said, they'd seen them at the Dollar General or the gas station.

The Ponder Fire Department later confirmed that five people were found dead inside of the home, and another person was injured.

Richardson is originally from SC and was dating Simpson.

Simpson posted a Facebook Live from her hospital bed Wednesday in which she detailed her injuries and the loss of her three children.

The gunman shot himself after killing his three children and his ex-wife's boyfriend at a residence in the 600 block of Lone Star Park Lane, a little more than 35 miles north of Fort Worth.

Funeral arrangements for those killed are still being planned.
