(Updated at 4:55 p.m.) A man and two women were found dead with apparent gunshot wounds barricaded inside a room of an apartment in Fair Lakes today (Tuesday), Fairfax County police said.

Police found the three people dead inside the apartment in the 4200 block of Mazarin Place after a family member of one of the deceased called 911 and requested a welfare check, Executive Deputy Chief Brian Reilly said at a press conference.

When officers arrived around 10:30 a.m., a roommate let them into the apartment and told them the back bedroom was the room the family member would be in, Reilly said. They were unable to open the door, so asked the fire department to assist. Using a ladder truck they could see inside the room and that the three appeared to be dead.

They forced entry into the room and saw two women and a man appeared to have been shot, Reilly said. They were pronounced dead at the scene.

“We believe all three people in that room were the only three people that were in that room at the time of what we believe to be a shooting of all three,” Reilly said. “Our detectives are investigating what took place.”

Police believe it is an isolated incident and there is no threat to the public, he said.
