SAN SABA, Texas – A stabbing left two adults and a 13-year-old girl dead in a home early Friday morning in the Central Texas town of San Saba, said Sgt. Bryan Washko, of the Texas Department of Public Safety.

A 62-year-old man and a 44-year-old woman were killed, Washko said.

Another teenage girl was injured in the attack. Her condition is not known.

The suspect, a man in his 20s, was arrested after he stole one of the victim’s vehicles and led law enforcement in a chase that ended when the man’s pickup crashed into a senior center in a nearby county, Washko said.

Washko didn’t know what the relationship was between the suspect and the victims and no motive has been established.

The incident happened near a school where the slain teen attended.

The Texas Rangers are helping with the investigation.

San Saba is located 141 miles north of San Antonio.
