There was no answer when the officers arrived at the scene and knocked at the door, according to police.
Police forced their way into the home and a survivor of the shooting pointed them toward three victims who died from gunshot wounds: a man in his late 40s and two women — one in her late 40s and another who was about 80-years-old.
Officers also found a man in his late 80s in a different area of the home who was dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. Police said they believe this man shot the three others.
