Authorities were called to a home in Lennox, south west of Sioux Falls yesterday morning where three people were shot and killed. Lincoln County Sheriff Dennis Johnson briefed the media early Tuesday afternoon.

Johnson says the child was of elementary school age.  Authorities are not pursuing a suspect and that It appears to be a murder-suicide that involved the death of an 8 year old boy.

Johnson says the call to respond to the home came in about ten a.m. Tuesday morning. Johnson says it will take some time to wrap up the investigation.
