    Six family members were found dead in an apparent murder-suicide that followed an hours-long standoff with police in Chesapeake, Virginia. 

    Officers were called to a home in the Deep Creek area of the city Wednesday afternoon to check on the welfare of a person, WAVY.com reports. When they went into the home, they found one person dead. 

    The investigation into that person's death led them to a nearby home, where an armed person was barricaded inside. 

    According to WAVY.com, police tried to negotiate with the suspect. But after several hours, they entered the home and found the armed suspect and four others dead. 

    Police say all of the victims were related to the suspect, but did not release any identifying information.

    No additional information has been released.
