SPRING BRANCH, Texas (AP) — Investigators say a Central Texas man, his wife and their two children died when the plane they were flying crashed next to a feed store shortly after takeoff.

The Comal County Sheriff's Office identified those killed as 38-year-old pilot Michael Scott Galloway of Spring Branch, his 32-year-old wife Heather Louise Galloway, their 10-year-old son Clayton T. Galloway and their 8-year-old daughter Cheyenne Elizabeth Galloway.
