Denver, CO, United States (4E) – Four people died Tuesday morning in Weld County, Colorado after a possible murder-suicide which was heard by a 911 dispatcher.

According to sheriff’s office spokesman Sgt. Tim Schwartz, the incident happened around 4:00 in the morning and the 911 call was made from someone inside the home.

The woman who called, provided an address in Longmont, before she said “no, no, no,” and what sounded like a series of gunshots followed.

Schwartz said a man, who picked up the phone, informed the dispatcher he is going to kill himself, before another gunshot erupted.

Schwartz said responding officers found the bodies of two men and two women at the scene. They have not been identified.

He added that there are no surviving witnesses.

The Denver Post reported police recovered a handgun from the scene, “which had been fired several times.”
