A gunman who killed six people and himself at a family Christmas celebration outside Dallas was dressed in a Santa Claus suit when he opened fire, 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.

“By all appearances, they’re all part of the same family,” said Sergeant Robert Eberling of the Grapevine police department.
