SYRACUSE – Three people were found dead inside a Syracuse home Tuesday night.

Police later confirmed that a woman and two girls were most likely involved in a murder-suicide.

Police say the bodies were located inside a home at 2133 West 1175 South.

According to Syracuse Police Officer Erin Behm, 911 dispatchers received a call at about 6:30 p.m. from an unknown person saying that there had been an incident at the home. The caller did not report shots fired.

When police entered the home, Behm said they found three people dead inside including an adult female and two juvenile girls.

Bem did not immediately release any information related to the ages or identity of any of the victims. 

Neighbor Joe Petersen told the Clipper his wife Karlene Petersen was making dinner in the kitchen when she heard a gunshot.  

Petersen said he arrived home from work a little later - at the exact same time police approached the scene. where a man was pacing outside.

According to Petersen, the man was "yelling and agitated."

Petersen said the people who lived in the home had moved in around October 2013, and that the residents seemed normal.

"Nothing seemed out of place," he said.

Behm said that there is no danger to residents, and that investigators were not searching for a shooter.

Behm said officers obtained a search warrant related to the investigation.

No arrests were made, but Behm said that an active investigation was ongoing and that persons of interest were being interviewed.

The names of the woman and two girls was not released due to the nature of the investigation, according to Behm.

Behm said Syracuse Police were called to the same address Monday to assist in a property exchange related to a domestic breakup.

A next-door neighbor told the Clipper a U-Haul trailer was parked outside the home on Monday.

Behm said there is no history of any kind of domestic disturbance from the home.

The couple who purchased the home moved in October, according to neighbors.

Neighbors also said they have seen several people entering and leaving the home since, but none of the neighbors had been well acquainted with the residents.
