    An investigation is under way after a man apparently killed his parents Wednesday before committing suicide, Irving police said.

    Police said the 20-year-old man and his parents were found with gunshot wounds at about 11:15 a.m. at a home in the 9000 block of Jasmine Lane in Valley Ranch. 

    The man's sister, who is also in her 20s, was not home at the time of the shootings, police said.
