(CNN) -- A family of five was found dead inside a residence outside Rice, Texas, on Sunday night, authorities said.

Navarro County sheriff's deputies found the bodies of two adults and three children inside.

"We are concentrating on the investigation inside the residence and we do not have reason to believe there are any other suspects at this time." Sheriff Elmer Tanner said. He would not say if the incident was a murder-suicide, or how the residents died.

Tanner added that deputies have responded to the home at least four previous times.

The sheriff's office said it will release more information at 10 a.m. ET Monday.
