Authorities in northwestern Arizona have released more details about the deaths of three people in a Mohave Valley home in what appears to be a double homicide-suicide.

Mohave County Sheriff's officials say 35-year-old Alexandria Rockwood, 46-year-old Bruce Penny and 68-year-old John Nielsen all suffered gunshot wounds and there's no suspect at large.

Deputies responding to a call for a welfare check discovered the bodies Tuesday night.

Authorities say autopsies results show Penny had an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound while Rockwood and Nielsen died from numerous gunshot wounds.

Sheriff's officials say Nielsen and Rockwood were living at the home as roommates.

They say there had been a relationship at one time between Penny and Rockwood and court orders had been issued by her against him although details weren't immediately released Thursday.
