Seven bodies with gunshot wounds have been found in a flat by police in the US state of Texas.

The victims - four women and three men - were discovered in the city of Grapevine, just outside Dallas.

Local police say they believe one person shot the other six before taking their own life.

The BBC reports the ages of the victims reportedly range from late teens to sixties.

Their names have not been released. A police investigation is now under way.

The victims appear to be three generations of the same family.
