    A father and adoptive son have been shot and killed at home in rural Northeast Texas, and a 13-year-old also adopted by the father is being held in the case.

    Cass County Sheriff Larry Rowe said deputies on Friday found the bodies of a 32-year-old man and his adopted 12-year-old son in their kitchen. They were responding to a 911 call from his son's 13-year-old brother, who the man also adopted.

    The 13-year-old is being held at a juvenile center in neighboring Gregg County. He has not been charged. Rowe says there are no other suspects in the case, and that a murder-suicide has not been ruled out.

    Authorities did not identify either boy.
