Authorities in Weld County, Colo. say a man shot and killed three people and then himself early Tuesday morning inside a suburban Denver home, Reuters reports:

Sergeant Tim Schwartz of the Weld County Sheriff's Office said police received a call from the home in a community about 35 miles north of Denver before dawn and heard a female voice say "No, no, no" before multiple gunshots were fired.

A man then came on the line and said he was going to kill himself, and the dispatcher heard another gunshot, Schwartz said.

According to Schwartz, the bodies of two males and two females included three adults, while one of the females may have been a teenager. A motive has not been determined.
