A statement put out by the Contra Costa County Sheriff's Office said officers entered the residence and found three bodies: an adult and two juveniles. The fire department confirmed all three to be deceased.

The adult is identified as 44-year-old Nemanja Isailovic of Danville.

Long-time resident Mike Quinata said he's in shock and is still processing something like this happening so close to home.

"This is shocking to the neighborhood, I have kids here..." Quinata said. "As far as processing, you really can't process it because I don't think we've even had anything as far as murder-suicide."
