In North Carolina, police say five people, including three minors, have died in what appears to be a murder-suicide.
According to the news release, officers were called to the neighborhood after a man and woman ran from the house screaming.
When investigators arrived, they encountered those same two people asking for assistance. In a statement to the Greensboro News & Record, police captain Matt Truitt said the pair fled the home where the deaths took place and were not injured by the attacker.
Officers discovered five bodies inside a home when they arrived at the home. Three minors and two adults were found dead at the scene, according to the High Point Police Department.
The home, located in High Point, North Carolina, had to be forced open by police, officials said. The identities and ages of those killed were not immediately released to the public.
There is an ongoing investigation into the incident, according to officials. The news release did not say how the victims died, but investigators described the killings as a “murder-suicide.” There is no ongoing threat to the community, investigators said.
The killings took place in an otherwise tidy residential neighborhood northeast of downtown High Point.
