Thursday, December 27, 2007
"We have an investigation of suspicious deaths," said Detective Bob Conner. There are "no threats to any neighbors in the area," he added.
So far two people, a man and a woman who are only described as being in their twenties, have been arrested in connection with the shooting. CNN says that neither of the two individuals have "access to lawyers" and neither of them have confessed to any wrongdoing.
"This couple was among the people that showed up at the [crime] scene. And as we got to talking to them, we developed probable cause and made the arrests," said Sergeant John Urquhart.
The dead were described as a couple in their 50s, a couple in their 30s, and two children — a 6-year-old girl and a 3-year-old boy.
Authorities describe it as a "complex and large" investigation with over 15 people gathering evidence.
