A woman, her husband and her brother were found dead at a home in Lincoln County in what appears to be a double homicide and suicide on Sunday.

A ‘shots fired' call sent the Lincoln County Sheriff's Department to a home in the Winwood subdivision around 2 a.m.

Upon arrival, deputies met with a couple that were in the home when they heard a gunshot in the bedroom.

The couple immediately ran from the home and then heard several more shots.

Deputies entered the residence and found the bodies of two men and one woman in the bedroom.

The bodies are believed to be Jeff Faulkner, 50, his wife Julaine Faulkner, 38, both of Fayetteville, and her brother, Ryan Oetken, 33 of Cartersville, GA.

The investigation is ongoing.
