Deputies approached the home to break the tragic news, but made another grim discovery.
Five people have been found shot dead in an apparent murder-suicide in Wisconsin.
Police were called to a residence in Lake Hallie after multiple reports of gunfire at 10.30PM on Sunday night, and discovered the bodies of a man and woman. Two other adults had suffered gun shot injuries but survived, and were taken to hospital.
But when Chippewa County Deputies went to the home of one of the deceased's relatives in the town of Lafayette at 2.30AM Monday to break the tragic news, they made another grim discovery: the bodies of three more people — a man, a woman, and a juvenile male.
