The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an apparent double murder-suicide that was discovered Tuesday night during a well-being check at a Deltona home.

Deputies responded to 610 Nardello Drive, Deltona, around 9:33 p.m. after relatives of the residents requested a well-being check because they hadn’t heard from anyone there in several hours.

When deputies entered the house, they found two women and a man each deceased with gunshot wounds.

The identities of the deceased, all adults, are not available for release at this time but will be provided in an update Wednesday morning.

Also Wednesday morning, Sheriff Chitwood will be available for a news briefing at the scene around 5:15 a.m. – 5:30 a.m.

Please stand by for those updates; no further information or details from the active investigation are available at this time.
