MARION, Ark. (WMC) - Three people are dead following a murder-suicide in Marion Tuesday morning.

Police responded to 800 block of Boulevard Saint Germaine for a welfare check around 9:30 a.m. While officers were obtaining information from two juveniles, they heard gunshots coming from inside the house.

Officers entered the home and located three deceased gunshot victims, police say. The deceased have been identified as Gabriel Brown, Nakina Gilmer-Brown, and one juvenile.

Neighbors were shocked to hear what happened.

“You have to be careful because you just don’t know how much a person can take,” said Lonnie Hinton. “So, you have to be careful of the way you treat each other. And He says in His word, love ye one another because you don’t never know what people are going through in their personal lives.”

Investigators say the death has been deemed as a murder-suicide but the investigation is ongoing.
