A 10-year-old boy and a 29-year-old woman are dead and the boy's father, the woman's boyfriend, is hospitalized in critical condition after a shooting at a Houston home.

Houston police say the shooting was discovered Monday afternoon when the man's other son, who's 14, returned home from school. Police Lt. John Zitzman says the boy and woman were found in an upstairs bedroom dead from gunshot wounds to the head.

He says the father was found bleeding from a head wound on an upstairs sofa. Police found no signs of forced entry or struggle, but neighbors reported seeing two men flee the scene. No arrests have been reported.
