Three people are dead after a double murder suicide Tuesday night.
It happened in the Manitou Lake Recreation Area.
The Teller County Sheriff tells 11 News, they received a 9-1-1 call at about 9:30 from a male party calling to report a double murder and suicide.
Sheriff Kevin Dougherty says he believes the caller was the suicide victim and that he shot an adult female, a young male, and then himself.
It's unclear if the victims are related, but the Sheriff says they're believed to be summer campground hosts at the Manitou site, who may live in other parts of the state or country.
