A couple and their adult son appear to have been killed in a double murder-suicide in their Sammamish home, the King County Sheriff’s Office said early Sunday.

Just after 7 p.m. Saturday, deputies went to a house in the 24000 block of Northeast 30th Place in the Broadmoore Estates after a family member asked the authorities to check on a man who did not show up for an appointment earlier in the day.

Deputies found the house locked, but through a window saw three bodies on the floor, according to King County Sheriff’s Sgt. Cindi West said. Once inside, they determined that all three people — two men and a woman — were dead. They found a gun nearby.

No names were released.

West said Sunday that she expected to have more information Monday after the King County medical examiner identifies the bodies.

But officials with the Sheriff’s Office believe the deceased are the couple and their son.
