ABC News Incident 1 month ago

Authorities have found three people dead inside a Virginia home following a shootout and a standoff.

A Fairfax County police statement says officers were called Monday night to a home in Burke after a woman reported a family member had threatened her with a gun. One man was able to escape the home and find help.

The statement says responding officers exchanged gunfire with a man at the home. Two officers suffered injuries not considered life-threatening. Police say the man then barricaded himself inside.

A SWAT team searched the home and found two men and one woman dead. Police say a medical examiner will perform autopsies to determine their causes.

Authorities haven't released the identities of the three adults or the injured officers.
