A man dressed as Santa Claus allegedly opened fire at a Texas Halloween party on Sunday morning, injuring four people.

Paramedics said a man and a woman were critically injured, the Austin American-Statesman reported.

The gunman was at the party and knew the victims, Knouse said.

The condition of two victims is estimated as critical.

Police have a suspect in custody, according to the newspaper. Police arrested the suspect at a second, separate location where no violence was reported Knouse said. He referenced a fourth victim who declined to be taken to a hospital, but he didn't say how that victim was wounded. A female victim suffered life-threatening injuries, a male victim suffered potentially life-threatening injuries and another female suffered serious injuries, according to officials.

A 14-year-old Russian model collapsed and died after suffering from "utter exhaustion" during a three-month modeling assignment in China, reports said.
