3 shot dead, 1 seriously wounded at Texas beachfront hotel

GALVESTON, Texas (AP) - Police say three people were shot to death and a fourth was wounded in an apparent murder-suicide at an upscale beachfront hotel in Southeast Texas.

Galveston Police Capt. Josh Schirard says the shootings happened around 4:30 a.m. Monday at the San Luis (loo-EE') Resort.

Schirard says another guest reported hearing a popping sound from a nearby room and called the police.

Officers entered the locked room and found three bodies, plus a fourth person who was seriously wounded. That person has been taken to a hospital.

Schirard says the four people shot had been staying together in the room where the bodies were found.

Police have not released their names or other details.
