    The gunman in Texas who murdered six people Christmas morning before killing himself was wearing a Santa suit during the rampage. Police still haven’t released any identities except to say the victims, who appear to be part of the same family, were aged 15 to 59 and that the shooter was one of the older men among the dead. The group had just opened presents when the shooting took place in the Dallas suburb of Grapevine, which the state Senate had recently named the “Christmas Capital of Texas.”
