Van Zandt County law enforcement officers have cleared the scene of a deadly shooting Monday night.
Officials say that three people were fatally shot in a home in the 1500 block of FM 314 near Van.
Van Zandt County Investigator Jake Smith said that two females and one male are dead in the shooting. All are members of the same family. Smith said that it appears the male used a handgun to shoot the females before turning the gun on himself. The bodies were found in different rooms inside the house, Smith added.
Smith also said that a woman and her juvenile daughter, also members of the same family, were able to escape the home and call 9-1-1 when the shooting was taking place.
