Multiple people were found dead at a home in suburban New Orleans Wednesday morning. Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s office captain Jason Rivarde says deputies were called to a home in Terrytown to provide medical assistance.

“Units got here and found five people inside the residence. Three of them have been pronounced deceased, and two others are in serious condition at a local hospital.”

Rivarde says three of the deceased individuals are two children and the other is an adult. He says they are trying to determine if this was a murder-suicide.

“As of now we are considering the three that are deceased murder victims. It is a homicide for the three people that are inside the residence.”

Rivarde did not provide details on how the individuals were killed or the relationship of the victims. He says there are a lot of questions they would like answered.

“Obviously this is not something that we normally deal with. A triple homicide is pretty rare especially for this area but we are going to proceed with it like it was any other homicide investigation. We will interview anybody we can who might have information.”
