5 dead in apparent murder-suicide


Police in South Florida were investigat­ing five deaths Friday in what they believe to be a murdersuic­ide.

Miami-dade police officers responded to a Miami Lakes home Friday morning after a relative requested a welfare check because she had been unable to contact the occupants, a news release said.

Officers entered the residence through a rear window and found three women and two men dead from apparent gunshot wounds, officials said. The wounds of one man appeared to be self-inflicted, leading investigat­ors to believe the case was a murder-suicide.

Police didn’t immediatel­y release the names or ages of the deceased or a motive.
