Eight people, including five children, have been found dead inside a house in Texas, after a man was arrested, following a gun battle with police.

Law enforcement officers were called to a home in the Houston area on Saturday and noticed a body when they looked through the window, which prompted them to try and storm the building.

A 49 year-old man is now in police custody, according to local KHOU-TV. He surrendered to law enforcement officers after gunfire had been exchanged as four deputies tried to force their way into the house, the Harris County Sheriff’s Office said.

No details about the identity of the five children and three adults who were killed have been released.

“At this time we have what appears to be five children and three adults,” said HCSO spokesman Thomas Gilliland. “Ages and genders we do not have, and cause of death we do not have. The medical examiner will have to determine a cause of death.”
