Virginia State police say two men and a woman in Grayson County are dead after an apparent murder-suicide.
State police spokesman Sgt. Michael Conroy said Grayson County sheriff's deputies were called shortly after noon Sunday to a home near Galax and found the three victims, all shot.
He said a man and woman were found in the front yard of a home and a third victim, a male, also dead inside an adjacent home.
Conroy said the three knew one another and that there were witnesses to the incident.
He said the names of the victims were being withheld until their families were notified.
Conroy said state police are handling the investigation for the Grayson County Sheriff's Office.
