Editor’s note: Resources for those in crisis have been included with this story.

Fort Collins police are investigating what they believe to be a murder-suicide after officers found a deceased man and two children inside a home in southeast Fort Collins on Saturday.

Police responded to the home in the 3500 block of Stratton Drive after a man called 911 about 10:25 a.m. and said three people were dead inside the home. Responding patrol officers did not get a response from anyone in the home when they arrived, prompting SWAT officers to quickly enter the home “in order to assist anyone who may be inside,” Fort Collins Police Services Deputy Chief Greg Yeager said in a video statement released Saturday afternoon.

After entering the home, police found the deceased adult man and two deceased children inside, according to the Saturday news release. Police say everyone who had been killed knew each other and the deaths are being investigated as a possible murder-suicide “based on preliminary information.”
