MCALLEN, Texas -- Authorities say a Texas teenager killed his mother and two neighbours before killing himself.
Uvalde County Sheriff Charlie Mendeke said Sunday that 19-year-old Dylan Westerburg gunned down his mother Friday in their home near Uvalde, about 85 miles (137 kilometres) west of San Antonio.
Mendeke says a witness saw Westerburg kill one of the brothers and called for help. When officers arrived they heard a final gunshot that investigators believe was Westerburg shooting himself inside the neighbours' home.
Authorities surrounded the homes and began evacuating those nearby. Not knowing the gunman was already dead, they weren't able to enter the neighbours' home until Saturday, when they found the three men dead inside.
Mendeke says investigators haven't determined a clear motive.
