Awful:

3 dead after home invasion, massive house fire south of Meridian

Around 10:30pm on 27 Sep 17 for unknown reasons a man with a gun pounded on the door of a house and occupants called 911. As deputies arrived the man succeeded in entering, was observed by deputies to be carrying a long arm, and refused orders to drop the weapon. Deputies fired at the man, unknown if they hit him or if he fired back. He disappeared into the house and moments later the deputies observed flames coming from the house. An elderly woman died in the fire, and one of two people who escaped with assistance of deputies later died of injuries. Body of a fourth person, presumed to be the intruder, was found in the remains of the house. House was total loss, collapsed into basement. Authorities know of no prior connection between the intruder and the occupants.

Ugh.
