Mckinney, Texas (AP) -- Officers responding to a shooting call in
this Dallas suburb found three people dead and a fourth injured, all
shot in the head, police said Saturday.
Police were called after
people who knew the victims discovered the bloody scene Friday night.
Authorities did not yet have a suspect in the killings. KXAS-TV in
Dallas reported that a vehicle was stolen from the residence.
Rosa Barbosa, 46; Mark Barbosa, 25; and Austin York, 18, were
pronounced dead at the scene after police arrived shortly after 9:30
p.m. Friday, Capt. Robert Dean said.
Matthew Self, 17, was taken by medical helicopter to Baylor
University Medical Center in Dallas. He was in critical condition,
Police said no other information was immediately available Saturday morning.
A neighbor, Bill Self, 68, said Rosa Barbosa had lived next door to
him for about 16 years. Two nephews, Mark Barbosa and Robert Barbosa,
lived with her, Self said. Robert Barbosa apparently was not home
when the shootings occurred. The other victims were friends of the
nephews, the neighbor said.
"They were just real fine people," Self said. "She's been a good
neighbor. There's never been any trouble that we know about."
Self said he had been home all day Friday and did not hear gunshots
or see anything unusual. He was asleep in his recliner when he
realized emergency vehicles were outside, he said.

"If something like that happened next door, it could very easily
happen here," a shaken Self said.
