Authorities found a 15-month-old and her family shot to death in a rural Texas home Monday morning and have thus far not found any leads in the bloody case.

The Polk County Sheriff's Office said they responded to a call Monday morning in Livington, Texas about victims of assault.

At the scene, they found several victims of gunshot wounds, the sheriff said.

Three people were found dead outside the house and two were found inside, officials said.

Chief Deputy Byron Lyons identified the deceased as Ashley Delaney and husband Randy Horn, as well as Delaney's in-laws, Carlos and Lynda Delaney. The child's identity wasn't immediately released. She is the one who called the cops at around 10:30 a.m.

Ashley Delaney's mother was found alive and locked in a bedroom, according to Lyons. However, he declined to characterize the incident as a multiple homicide and suicide.
