A young couple and their two-month-old girl have been found dead in a hotel room in Alaska, in a tragedy that is being treated as a combination of murder and suicide.
Police said all the dead had gunshot wounds and there are no signs that drugs or alcohol were involved.
Police and fire services found a man crying as he sat in a second-floor hallway of a Hampton Inn when they were called by hotel staff on Friday.
The unidentified man led police into a nearby room, where they discovered the bodies of Linda Hutton (54) McKay Hutton (22) Emily McDonald (22) and toddler Teagan Hutton.
"All we can say is that it's a family," Fairbanks Police officer Doug Welborn told the Daily News early Saturday, declining to specify the relationship between the victims.
"This is a very fluid situation," he added.
Post mortems are due to be performed on the victims.
