Two women and a man were found shot and killed inside an apartment in the Fair Lakes area of Fairfax County, Virginia, on Tuesday, police say.
About 10:30 a.m., the mother of a women who lives at the apartment at the Camden Fair Lakes Apartments complex asked police to do a welfare check after she couldn't reach her daughter and learned her daughter didn't show up for work, Fairfax County police said.
When officers arrived and knocked on the apartment door, a roommate answered and let them inside, police said. They found the two women and a man shot to death in a bedroom.
On Wednesday, police said that detectives found evidence that the three found dead had made a suicide pact. Police believe the man shot the two women before shooting himself.
All three of them lived in the apartment, police said.
The roommate who let officers in the unit is not considered a person of interest and she is cooperating with the investigation, police said.
