TROY, MO. – Lincoln County tragedy Thursday morning after triple shooting at home ends in three dead. Authorities said the case was a double homicide-suicide.

The shooting stemmed from a domestic dispute and all three involved are related. Detectives from the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Department and the Lincoln County Coroner’s Office are investigating the case.

Officers rushed to a home on the 2500 block of Highway W at around 8:15 p.m. after firing shots. Investigators said when police arrived at the scene, they found an adult woman and two adult men with gunshot wounds inside the home.

We are told that two of the people, the woman and one of the men, were pronounced dead at the scene. Investigators said the other man, who authorities believe was the shooter, suffered from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
