3 dead in West Texas in apparent murder-suicide

LUBBOCK, Texas — Authorities have identified three people killed in what's described as a murder-suicide arising from a domestic dispute in West Texas.

Lubbock County sheriff's Lt. Bryan Taylor says the bodies of 17-year-old Jack Alexander Bridges and 19-year-old Kayla Ann Lewis were found Sunday morning at a Lubbock home. The body of 20-year-old Mark Antonio Reyes, the suspected shooter, was found at another residence. Taylor says his death is likely a suicide.

Investigators believe a dispute prompted the shooter to go to Lewis' home, where she and Bridges were killed with a handgun.

A 5-month-old baby was found unharmed at the same residence where Reyes' body was discovered. Taylor says the infant is believed to be Lewis' child and is now in state custody.
