A DAD allegedly shot dead his wife and two daughters in what cops are calling a triple homicide after arriving at the disturbing scene.

The three women suffered multiple gunshot wounds, according to Fayette County Coroner Gary Ginn.

Officers with the Lexington Police Department responded around 4pm local time to reports of disorder with a gun.

Upon arrival, cops found the 65-year-old female, a 42-year-old female, and a 38-year-old female. All three were pronounced dead at the scene.

"From what I understand, the person that has been taken into custody lives here at this house and he's taken the life of his wife and two daughters," Ginn told a local NBC affiliate.

"He is the husband of one of the white females."
