VERSAILLES — The Morgan County Sheriff's Office is currently investigating a double homicide south of Versailles just off Route TT.

Morgan County 911 received a phone call Monday from a female around 11 a.m. stating that she had been shot.

A press release from the sheriff's office stated they received a second call from the same residence shortly after.

Deputies and a state trooper dispatched to the scene. The first deputies arrived and found two people, a man and a woman who had both been shot.

A deputy met a white van near the residence. A Morgan County detective later drove into a ditch to avoid the van, according to the press release.

The driver of the van attempted to hit the detective's vehicle head on after seeing the state trooper's car about three miles away from the scene on Highway 5.

The release stated that the detective vehicle's side view mirror was knocked off and some damage was made to the left rear side.

A second detective observed the incident and the state trooper returned to the scene where one female and two males were taken into custody.

Names of the victims and the three in custody are not being released at this time. The sheriff's office is being assisted by the Highway Patrol Division of Drug and Crime Control.

The homicides are under investigation at this time.
