FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) — Two children and one man died in Fort Collins in what police believe involved murder and suicide.
Fort Collins Police Services said in a statement that a man called 911 at 10:25 a.m. to report three people were dead in a home.
Responding officers found two children and a man who had died. Police believe the man is the person who called 911.
Based on preliminary information, police are investigating it as a possible murder and suicide. The three people knew each other and there’s no indication of an ongoing threat to the public, according to police.
