Police surround the home in Ponder, Texas, where five people were found dead on May 16, 2018.

The Tarrant County Medical Examiner's Office identified two of the dead as Justin Painter, 39, of Fort Worth and Seth Richardson, 29, of Lancaster, South Carolina.

Capt Hinojosa said at a press briefing that the agency is not actively looking for a shooter.

Simpson posted a Facebook Live from her hospital bed Wednesday in which she detailed her injuries and the loss of her three children.

Both the Denton County Sheriff's Department and Ponder Police are investigating.

It happened just before 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday morning at a home in the 600 block of Lonestar Park Lane, near FM 2499.

Shortly before they responded to the scene, firefighters learned there were multiple victims inside the home.

Authorities said there was no threat to the community. Hinojosa said that upon arriving, Ponder Police officers found several deceased people in the home.

Another neighbor, Dianna Booker, said she didn't know the people.

The Ponder Independent School District said it was placed on "heightened alert", but the area was later determined to be secure. "Regretful, regretful really sad pray for them, pray for the family, pray for the neighborhood".
