KERRVILLE, Texas — Six people were killed when a twin-engine Beechcraft BE58 crashed Monday morning while preparing to land at Kerrville Municipal Airport in Kerrville, Texas.

Lynn Lunsford, an FAA spokesperson, tells MyTexasDaily.com the crash occurred shortly after 9 a.m. and the wreckage was located about six miles northwest of the Kerrville Municipal Airport.

At least six were aboard the aircraft when it departed West Houston Airport earlier this morning, according to Lunsford.

Texas Department of Public Safety Sergeant Orlando Moreno confirms all six occupants of the plane were killed.

"FAA investigators are on their way to the accident site, and the National Transportation Safety Board has been notified," stated Lunsford. "The NTSB will be in charge of the investigation."

The FAA has not released the aircraft's tail number pending on-scene verification by investigators.

The identities of the deceased have not been released at the time of press.
