SYRACUSE, Utah (ABC 4 Utah) -  Three people are believed to have been shot to death Tuesday night in Syracuse. Police said the bodies of three people were found dead inside a home near 2100 West and 1100 South.  


All three were females, one adult and two juveniles. Police are treating the investigation as a murder-suicide at this time.


Family and loved ones briefly spoke with ABC 4 Utah Reporter Brian Carlson. They're grieving what appears to be a fatal shooting in the Syracuse home.


"We have confirmed there are 3 dead inside the home," said Erin Behm, Syracuse Police Dept. 


Police said they got a disturbance call Tuesday around 6:30 p.m. Officers confirm the three people who died were shot to death.


"I thought I heard a gun shot," said Karlene Petersen, neighbor.  


Neighbors said a mother, her boyfriend, and two children ages 13 and 7 just moved into the neighborhood. They said the mother and boyfriend appeared to get into a fight. Tuesday afternoon it looked like  the boyfriend was moving out. 

 

"I saw a moving truck come down and there were people outside the house and I thought it was weird because they'd only lived there a month or two," said Toni Draper, neighbor.  


Less than two hours later, one neighbor heard a gun shot, and others saw a man walking around the neighbor acting strange. 


"I could hear a man outside very distraught," said Petersen.  


The family of the people who live in the home said the woman was very upset about breaking up with her boyfriend. 


So far it's unclear who that man was who was roaming the streets, but more than one neighbor spotting him acting strange. 


Police said they're not looking for any suspects in this case.
