    Two children are dead along with an adult male in what police in North Richland Hills described as an apparent murder-suicide.

    North Richland Hills police said they were called by the mother of the children at about 7:15 a.m. Saturday to a home in the 7400 block of College Circle South.

    Police said the children involved were a five-year-old girl and a nine-year-old boy. The adult male who was dead on the scene is believed to be the father of the children.

    "And it's just crushing to us. It really hits us. It really does," said North Richland Hills Police public information officer Carissa Katekaru.

    Police said the deaths were due to a shooting.

    The mother of the children was at the home at the time, but was not injured.

    "Losing two kids right here at Christmas time, that's tough," said neighbor Karen Banner.

    Neighbors said the family recently moved into the home.

    Investigators tell NBC 5 they have no record of any prior calls to the home involving the family.
