Four people were shot dead in a Tennessee home Monday in an apparent murder-suicide, police said.

The Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office said the shooting happened at a Murfreesboro house around 3:30 a.m. Two men and two women were killed in a bedroom, FOX13 Memphis reported.

Officials said that the victims may not all be related.

Sean Ganey, who was identified as the shooter, shot his wife Cassidy Ganey, her father, Kenny Adair, her stepmother Shelly Lorenz Adair, and then himself, Sheriff Mike Fitzhugh said. A child found at the scene was unharmed.

Sean Ganey was taken to a hospital by officers on Friday after he expressed thoughts about suicide, police said. The weapons were removed from the house and police do not know how he was able to get the weapon used in the killings.

“He was transported to the hospital and… we’re trying to find out now what took place after that,” Fitzhugh told reporters, according to the Daily News Journal.

The police still trying to piece together the events that led up to the shooting. She said marital problems may be to blame.

“We think that there is a possibility of a divorce or at least a response from a divorce which may have led to this,” Fitzhugh said.
