About a dozen officers were on the scene after an assault on Sweet Birch Drive in Greensboro.

No suspect information or information on how the victims were killed has been released.

Anyone with information on this crime is asked to contact Greensboro/Guilford Crime Stoppers at (336) 373-1000.

FOX8 spoke with an out-of-town family member of one of the victims.

She tells FOX8 that a woman, two little girls, and a man lived at the home and were there when officers arrived. She said she got a disturbing phone call from the woman who lives there.

She was worried about the woman’s state of mind and immediately called police to check on her and the well-being of the other people who live there.

That’s what prompted the welfare check and proceeding homicide investigation.
