A family of five, including 3 children, has been found shot to death at a home in Virginia in what authorities believe is a murder-suicide.

The Culpeper County Sheriff's Office said the victims were two adults, both 35 years old, and three children.

The bodies of Clarence and Shauna Washington and their three daughters -- 4-year-old Olivia, 6-year-old Onya and 13-year-old Omesha -- were found inside their home Sunday night, Fox affiliate WTTG reported.

The Washingtons were having ongoing domestic disputes and the investigation has been preliminarily classified as a murder-suicide, according to the station, which also reported that a gun was found at the scene.
