  • 5 found dead, 1 injured in Ponder home shooting

Multiple people were killed in a shooting at a home in Ponder, just west of Denton.

Five victims were pronounced dead at the scene and a woman was transported to Medical City Denton for treatment.

"I didn't even know if they owned the house or rented", Booker said.

Police surround the home in Ponder, Texas, where five people were found dead on May 16, 2018. She tightly held a picture of her three children.

The gunman also shot his ex-wife, Amanda Simpson, who was hospitalized and in critical condition Wednesday evening, Hinojosa said.

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