The incident was reported at about 1:56 p.m. on Monday when the Volusia County Sheriff's Office's Communications Center received a frantic 911 call from 305 Providence Blvd. Deputies arrived on the scene about two minutes later.

Shortly after converging at the scene, deputies made entry into the residence, where they found the bodies of an adult male and an adult woman in a bedroom. Two small children who were in the residence when deputies arrived were physically unharmed.

"While the victims haven’t been identified, preliminary information at the scene indicates that the deaths may be the result of a murder-suicide," said Gary Davidson, a spokesman for the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office.

The deaths are being investigated by the Sheriff’s Office’s Major Case Unit.
