Detective Chief Inspector Ian Saunders from Wiltshire police has said: "The investigation continues to try and establish what led to this tragic incident.
"We have recovered a weapon from the scene. My working assumption is that weapons were discharged and the victims had sustained some form of gunshot wounds."
Post-mortem examinations will be carried out today.
