Sheriff: 2 women, 3 girls found dead in Arkansas home

ATKINS, Ark. (AP) - Two women and three girls were found dead in a house in northwest Arkansas in what authorities are investigating as suspected murders.
The MPs answered a call around 5 p.m. Friday and found the five people dead in a house in Atkins, a town about 65 miles (105 kilometers) northwest of Little Rock, Pope County Sheriff Shane Jones said in a statement. The dead were between 8 and 50 years old and are all believed to have been related, he said.
Jones said during a brief press conference on Saturday that authorities did not immediately have a suspect and that at least some of the people were shot. He did not provide any further details.
"Currently we believe this is an isolated incident and do not believe there is a continuing threat to the local public," he said. "We believe this may be domestic."
MPs are investigating the deaths with the help of the Arkansas State Police. A spokesman for the sheriff's office did not immediately respond to questions.
