Garden City — Two people were found dead and a third person was wounded in a Garden City home Wednesday morning.

Authorities responded to the 32500 block of Rosslyn at about 11 a.m. That's south of Marquette and east of Venoy.

Police said a man called the department's 911 emergency line and "made a brief statement to dispatchers that he was going to commit suicide and suggested that his location should be tracked," they said in a statement. "He then hung up the telephone."

Dispatchers used the number to track the signal back to an address on Rosslyn.

At the home, officers found three people: two dead, and one critically injured, police said.The injured person was transported to a hospital.

"The preliminary investigation has revealed that all three people are related and one of the deceased is believed to be the initial 911 caller," police said.

Police said they were unable to provide more information Wednesday night.
