Police on Saturday were at the scene of a deadly shooting in a northwest Reno home where police said the bodies of two children and a man were found.

Shooting circumstances were not clear.

Names of the three and their ages were not immediately released. Police would not say whether the three in the Stone Valley Drive home were related.

Police said no one else was inside when the shooting occurred and that officers were not looking for any suspects.

A handgun was used in the shooting, Officer Tim Broadway said.

Neighbor Rosa Poljak said that about 4:30 p.m. Saturday she heard sounds outside the home where the shooting occurred.

“We heard a lady yelling and screaming, that (people) there had been shot,” Poljak said via telephone from a home next to the shooting scene.

“It was very distressful, very bad,” Poljak said.

Police arrived a short time later.

Poljak said she did not know that woman or those living in the home well and that on Halloween she had last seen a man living in the next door home.

Poljak said that police had not provided her with any details of the shooting.

Officers on Saturday evening had blocked Stone Valley Drive to incoming traffic. By 7 p.m., neighbors with a police escort were being allowed to drive to their homes.

Earlier, Sparks police had reported that its department was helping handle other calls in Reno while Reno officers responded to the Stone Valley Drive home.

Police remained at the scene into the night.
