Authorities said a “reverse 911″ or Everbridge, was sent to families in the community within a 2-mile radius, asking them to stay inside and lock their doors and windows. 

It was unclear who carried out the attack, or if the victims were related. Their identities have not been released until positive identification by the Coroner’s Office and notification of next of kin.

There is not a threat to the community at this time, the sheriff’s office noted.
