GRAPEVINE, Texas – A man suspected of opening fire on a family Christmas celebration outside Dallas was dressed in a Santa Claus suit when he killed six people and then himself, police said on Monday.

Authorities continued their search for clues in Grapevine, a Dallas suburb dubbed the “Christmas Capital of Texas,” to explain the Sunday murder-suicide rampage that left the seven shot dead among unwrapped holiday presents.

The dead — four women and three men between the ages of 15 and 58 — were found on Sunday morning in an apartment living-room by police answering a voiceless 911 emergency call, authorities said.
