Cops found the three victims identified as Lisa Wilson, 65, and her two daughters Bryonny, 42, and Bronwyn, 38, in the house. All three were pronounced dead at the scene. "From what I understand, the person that has been taken into custody lives here at this house and he's taken the life of his wife and two daughters," Fayette County Coroner Gary Ginn said. "He is the husband of one of the white females", he added. "Any time you find three females in one house and they've all suffered injuries and gunshot wounds by a family member, it's pretty disturbing."

Wilson does not have a prior criminal history. Frances James, a neighbor told WTVQ that “It’s really shocking that he chose to do this, really.” James added, “He was not a real friendly person, however, he was a neighbor and we spoke. But they’re pretty saddened by it too, you know, it’s a neighbor,” says James. “It didn’t need to happen.”

Lexington Police Department is still investigating the case and there was no comment on whether Wilson was injured. The coroner says he wasn’t able to determine at the scene whether the women sustained any other injuries besides multiple gunshot wounds. The coroner’s report says official cause of death is pending autopsy.
