Three teenagers were found dead in a Houston-area home Tuesday in what the Harris County sheriff said appeared to be a double murder-suicide.

Two girls and a boy were found dead in a home near Crosby, northeast of Houston, by a family member looking for one of the teenagers, Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said.

The teenagers had signs of trauma, and a firearm thought to be connected was found inside the home, he said.

"We're proceeding as if it's most likely, at first glance, to be a double murder and suicide," Gonzalez said.

The teenagers' identities have not been released, and the relationship among them was not immediately clear, Gonzalez said.

The investigation is in its early stages and the motive is not known, Gonzalez said. The homeowner was away on travel, he said

Gonzalez said there is no threat to the public. He called the situation tragic.

"Our condolences go out to all the family members," he said.
