Eight people, including five children, were found dead from gunshot wounds inside a home in southwest Utah on Wednesday, officials said.

Police did not give a suspected motive for the killings, but did say they do not believe there is an ongoing threat to the public.

The victims were found when police did a welfare check at the residence, according to a statement by city officials in Enoch, a small town of about 8,000 people located about 250 miles south of Salt Lake City. The victims were all members of one family, and Enoch City Manager Rob Dotson said they were well known in the town.

Utah Gov. Spencer Cox gave his condolences in a tweet Wednesday night. “Our hearts go out to all those affected by this senseless violence. Please keep the community of Enoch in your prayers,” Cox said.

The investigation is ongoing.
