Volusia sheriff's detectives are investigating an apparent murder-suicide incident in Deltona.

On Sunday morning, deputies responded to a report of two people found deceased in a home at 1730 Sumatra Ave.

The deceased were identified as 55-year-old Daniel Demarco and his son, 34-year-old Travis Demarco.

The investigation indicates Travis Demarco fatally shot his father, then himself.

Through interviews, detectives learned that Travis had been dealing with mental health issues, including a serious condition that was officially diagnosed earlier this year.

His father had expressed concerns about his son’s mental state and behavior and was helping him receive treatment and medication.

The bodies were discovered by another resident of the house around 11:30 a.m. Sunday, after Daniel didn’t respond to attempts to contact him by phone.

The investigation is continuing, and the Sheriff’s Office extends its sincere condolences to the family and friends of the deceased.
