4 Dead in Apparent Murder-Suicide at Galveston Beach Hotel

Four people are dead in an apparent murder-suicide at an upscale beachfront hotel in Southeast Texas.

Galveston Police Capt. Josh Schirard said the shootings happened around 4:30 a.m. Monday at the San Luis Resort.

Schirard said another guest reported hearing a popping sound from a nearby room and called the police.

Officers entered the locked room and found three bodies, plus a fourth person who was seriously wounded.

Schirard said the fourth person, a woman, was discovered wounded and transported to a hospital, where she later died.

Schirard said the four people shot had been staying together in the room where the bodies were found.

Police have not released their names or other details.
