The man and two children who were found dead in a house in southeast Fort Collins on Saturday have been identified by the Larimer County Coroner’s Office as the victims of a possible murder-suicide.

At about 10:25 a.m., a man called 911 from a home in the 3500 block of Stratton Drive in Fort Collins and reported that three people were dead inside.

Police said in a statement on Saturday that when they arrived at the house, they received no response, so SWAT officers went inside to see if anyone needed assistance.

The home contained the bodies of a man and two children, according to a news release issued by police on Saturday. The man who was found dead inside the house is suspected by police to have been the 911 caller.

A shelter-in-place alert covering Stratton Drive between Mansfield Drive and Kingston Drive was quickly issued after the man’s 911 call. Around three hours later, the warning was canceled. He was Adam Zipperer, 36, from Fort Collins, according to the Larimer County Coroner’s Office. The coroner determined that he killed himself.

It was determined that the children were Cameron Zipperer, age 8, and Audrey Zipperer, age 6, both of Timnath. A coroner ruled that their murders were justified by the evidence found: gunshot wounds.

Police said Saturday that they were treating the shooting as possible murder-suicide based on the available evidence. As of Tuesday evening at 5:00, Fort Collins police had not provided an update on the investigation.
