MCGREGOR, Texas (AP) - Five people were found dead in a Central Texas residential neighborhood Thursday, officials said.

Details on what happened were sketchy, but a spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety said officers of several law enforcement agencies converged on the neighborhood in McGregor, about 20 miles (32 kilometers) southwest of Waco.

Sgt. Ryan Howard declined to say if the five had gunshot wounds, saying that the cause of death was still to be determined. Law enforcement officers shot one person, and a suspect was in custody, he said. Howard declined to say if the suspect was the one shot, but he added that the suspect was alive and there was no ongoing threat to the public.

No motives, relationships and other details were immediately determined, and identities were being withheld until relatives could be notified, he said.

However, the McGregor Independent School District issued a statement that it had sent counselors to various campuses. "In light of today's events, and out of respect for the victims, all MISD activities, including the JH pep rally and all JH & sub-varsity games, have been canceled," the district statement said.

Furthermore, the nearby Troy Independent School District announced on its social media: "All middle school, freshman, and junior varsity football games have been canceled tonight due to the tragic shooting in the McGregor community."

"Our thoughts and prayers go out to all involved," the district said.
