Police said two men were killed and a woman was seriously injured in a house in Windermere, Florida.
Police said the suspect, Ezekiel Emmanuel Hopkins, attempted to steal a car parked outside the home when homeowners John and Lisa Saffay confronted him, according to WKMG.
Police said Hopkins began hitting John Savy with a baseball bat, then went inside and began hitting Lisa Savy and their son James.
James and John Safi were killed, and Lisa Safi was taken to hospital with serious injuries.
Police said a 10-year-old boy living at home with his grandparents called 911 to report the accident and hid in the bathroom while talking to the senders.

The boy was hurt.
Police say Hopkins faces charges of two counts of murder and one of the aggravated battery charges.
