ANDOVER, MASS. (WHDH) – A police investigation is underway at a home in Andover Thursday morning after three people were found shot to death inside, according to police.

Officers responded to a 911 call from a home on Porter Road around 3 a.m. After knocking down two doors to get inside, police said they found a father, mother, and their 12-year-old son dead inside.

State and local police soon established a scene, with investigators coming in and out of the home and moving evidence throughout the morning.

During a news conference, Essex County District Attorney Paul Tucker stated there was no danger posed to the community.

The victims have not yet been identified as police work to contact next of kin, though authorities have said the 12-year-old victim was a 6th grade student at St. John’s Preparatory School, and that school had been canceled for the day.
