ALLEN, Texas — Six people were found dead in an Allen home early Monday in what police said is an apparent murder-suicide.

Officers responded to a call about a welfare check about 1 a.m. to the 1500 block of Pine Bluff Drive in Allen, police said.

The call came from a family friend who said that someone at the home was suicidal, police said.

When officers arrived, they found a family of six people dead inside the home.

Police did not release the identities of the victims but said the victims include two teenage brothers, a sister, their father and mother, and a grandmother. The youngest victim was 19 years old, police said.

Police said they believe the brothers are the suspects.

“Apparently two brothers made an agreement to commit suicide and ended up taking the entire family with them,” said Allen Police Sergeant Jon Felty.

Police believe that the incident happened sometime Saturday.

The incident was contained to the home and there is no threat to the community, police said.
