Local police agencies are investigating the deaths of five people in separate shooting incidents. State Police were called to a Danville home around 8:30pm to the report of a person shot.

30-year old Melissa Burton was found shot to death inside her home at 774 Courtney Cr. Her husband, Hendricks County Jailer Jason Burton, told police he got home around 8:30 and heard  a gunshot, then found his wife with a gunshot wound and performed CPR. She was pronounced dead at the scene. Police say an autopsy is scheduled for Monday.

Metro Police later responded to two people shot on the south side. Police found two men shot to death in the 600 block of Front Royal Drive. Homicide Detectives say the men knew each other and they are not looking for a suspect.

Investigators suspect murder-suicide in the deaths of two men found dead at Independent Concrete Pipe in the 2000 block of Harding Street this morning. The bodies were found in a van outside the business around 7:45am Monday.
