3 kids among 5 dead in SW Fla.

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) — Investigators say a man apparently killed his family before turning the gun on himself inside their southwest Florida home.

Lee County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the scene early Sunday and found the man, his wife and three daughters dead.

Sheriff Mike Scott says a man called the sheriff’s office about 2:25 a.m., but he didn’t release the details of the conversation.

Scott says deputies found “a horrific and unthinkable scene” inside the home in San Carlos Park near Fort Myers.

He says the children ranged in age from 2 to 10 years old.

The names of the victims have not been released.

Neighbors told the News-Press of Fort Myers (http://newspr.es/1pcek6Y ) there had been a loud party at the house on Saturday night and the music stopped around 2 a.m. Sunday.
