Police are investigating the deaths of a Florida couple found shot in their bedroom in what is being described as a home invasion.

The victims were Byrd and Melanie Billings, parents of 16 children – 12 of them adopted. The Billings were known for helping children with disabilities and troubled backgrounds. Family members say all of the children were at home at the time of the shooting, but they were not hurt. Deputies say they want to question three men in a red van about the shooting.

Update:  After eight men were arrested for the crime, authorities announced Pamela Laverne Long as a “person of interest.”  Long is expected to go in for questioning.
