PONDER, Texas  — Authorities say a man walked into a rural North Texas home and shot his ex-wife’s three children and her boyfriend dead before killing himself.

The crime scene is in Ponder, a town of about 2,000 residents about 40 miles  northwest of Dallas.

Hinojosa said he had no ages or identities of the dead and wounded.
