Kentucky State Police have identified the three people shot dead during an incident Saturday night in Henderson County.
They are 26-year old Arianna Ziebell, 42-year old Joshua Mallory and 27-year old Mason Quinn, all of Henderson.
The incident happened at a location on KY 136 West in the Smith Mills community and a news release says when troopers and deputies arrived, they observed two victims outside of the residence with apparent gunshot wounds. One female was deceased and another male was taken to an Evansville Indiana hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries.
Information gathered on scene indicated there were four children inside the house and possibly another male. Henderson County authorities activated their Emergency Response Team and Kentucky State Police’s Special Response Team. In less than an hour, troopers and deputies were able to get all four children from the house safely. Once the house was cleared, the third male was located deceased with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
The investigation is continuing by Kentucky State Police and the Henderson County Coroners Office.
