5 dead, including a child, after shooting at a Texas home and a suspect with AR-style rifle is still at large

A suspect is at large following a shooting Friday night at a home in Cleveland, Texas, that left five people, including an 8-year-old child, dead, authorities said.

Four of the victims were found dead inside a residence on Walters Road in the Trails End area, the San Jacinto County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post on Saturday. The child died at a hospital.

Authorities said deputies were called to the home around 11:30 p.m. Friday in reference to a harassment complaint. The suspect, 38-year-old Francisco Oropeza, used an AR-style rifle in the shooting, according to The Associated Press.

“While enroute, the communications center received multiple 911 calls of an active shooter incident at the dispatch location,” the department said.
