Police are investigating after four people were found shot to death in a Preston home.

A nearby neighbor discovered the bodies Sunday evening.

According to a news release, Preston Police Chief Ken Geddes says officers were called to the home around 5 p.m. Sunday.

The deceased have been identified as an adult male, Tate Spillet, his 15-year-old stepson Corbin Hillaker, his 7-year-old son, McCoy, and his 6-year-old daughter Jessica.

Police say there is no threat to the public and are now investigating the incident as a murder-suicide.

A family friend has set up a crowd funding campaign to help cover funeral costs.
