At least five people were killed Monday following a shooting at a home in rural Texas, authorities said.

"Troopers from the Texas Highway Patrol and Deputies arrived on scene discovering multiple victims from apparent gunshot wounds", the Polk County Sheriff's Office said.

Five family members, including a baby, were found dead at this southeast Texas home. The other three victims are Ashley Delaney, 27, her husband, Randy Horn, 54, and their 15-month-old daughter. The child's identity wasn't immediately released.

A woman, identified as the mother of Ashley, was found locked in the back bedroom. She told authorities she hid in a bedroom and wasn't hurt.
