The plane, a Beechcraft 60 G-Type flying from Bogotá's El Dorado Airport to the town of Guaymaral, "fell out of the sky" about 4:20 p.m. (5:20 p.m. ET) into a residence that houses a bakery, Aerocivil said in a statement Sunday night. All of the dead were on board the plane, it said, including the plane's owner, identified as José Alberto Olivares, and its pilot, Juan Pablo Angulo Reyes.

Six people, ages 11 to 50, were injured on the ground and were treated at hospitals, Aerocivil and fire officials said. Their conditions weren't immediately reported. About seven other people were treated at the scene for minor injuries.

Investigators were working at the scene to determine the cause of the accident, about which Aerocivil said it had no further information.
