A man in Texas has killed five of his neighbors, including an 8-year-old, after being asked to stop firing a rifle in his yard late at night. The incident occurred at around 11:30pm on Friday in Cleveland, Texas, about 50 miles northeast of Houston. Three adults and a teenager were found dead at the scene, while an 8-year-old boy was pronounced deceased after being transported to a hospital. Two female victims were found in an upstairs bedroom, with their bodies shielding two surviving children. Three other people in the house were seriously injured.

The gunman, 39-year-old Francisco Oropeza, was known to shoot a.223-caliber rifle, and authorities had previously received reports about him firing the weapon in his yard. At least three weapons were found in his home. There have been at least 18 US shootings this year in which four or more people were killed.
