    ELBERTA ' Two family members are dead and two more hospitalized after a shooting in Elberta, according to Benzie County Undersheriff Greg Hubers.

    A mother and adult son were dead when sheriff's deputies arrived to their home shortly after 6 p.m., he said.

    Dispatchers got a hang-up call at around 6 p.m., and the dispatcher who answered heard labored breathing and what sounded like a call for help, Hubers said.

    A sheriff's deputy found one of the deceased family in the doorway, and he and another deputy found three more people inside, all of whom had been shot, Hubers said.

    The father and second adult son were transported to Munson Medical Center, one by helicopter and the other by ambulance, Hubers said. Both were in 'very critical' condition and unable to speak.

    Two handguns were found inside, and both had been fired, he said.

    'We don't believe there are any suspects at large, all of the gunshots occurred within the residents from people within the residence,' he said.

    A dispatch Benzie County Central Dispatch said the incident was contained and there was no threat to the community as of 7:45 p.m.

    It's unknown at this time who shot whom or why, Hubers said.

    Deputies had very little contact with the family in the past, and the nearest neighbors, who live about one-quarter mile away, told investigators they were unaware anything happened until they saw patrol car lights, Hubers said.

    Law enforcement is still looking into the incident, Benzie County Sheriff Ted Schendel said.

    Investigators on-scene have requested a Michigan State Police crime lab unit, according to MSP spokesman Lt. Derrick Carroll.

    Hubers said he expected to release more information at some point Saturday.

    Investigation continues in Benzie County homicide

    BENZIE COUNTY, Mich., (WPBN/WGTU) -- The Benzie County Sheriff’s Office released the names of the victims involved in a shooting Friday night in the Village of Elberta.

    63-year-old Marilyn Schultz Freebold and her son, 27-year-old Robert James Freebold were declared dead at the scene, according to officials.

    The other son, 20-year-old Malachi Andrew Maloney was transported to Munson Medical Center in Traverse City, but later passed away from his injuries.

    The Sheriff’s Office said all three victims died of gunshot wounds.

    Robert Michael Freebold Sr. remains in critical condition at Munson Medical Center in Traverse City as of Saturday night.

    The shooting happened at a residence on Grand Avenue in Elberta, according to Undersheriff Gregory Hubers.

    “There were at least two weapons located in the house in the general area of the three decedents and at least one of those weapons has been fired,” Hubers said.

    The Sheriff’s Office said all bullets were contained inside the home and they do not believe there is a suspect at large.

    "We are unsure of that right now we're hoping the interview with the patient at Munson or the MSP lab work can help us determine some of that information,” Hubers said.

    The Undersheriff said they have been called to the home in the past but not for any major issues.

    The Sheriff's Office said they do not know if drugs or alcohol were a factor and they're still waiting on autopsy results.

    This sounds like an attempted murder/suicide. Maybe someone pulled out their gun when they saw what was about to happen.
