Four family members in Hampton are dead following a domestic incident, including an armed man on a roof who was shot by police.

Hampton Police Cpl. Jason Price says officers responding to a neighbor's call around 3:56 a.m. Wednesday found the woman in the street. She had multiple stab wounds and at least one gunshot wound. She died at a local hospital.

As the officers approached the house, Price says they encountered a man armed with a gun on the roof. He was killed in an exchange of gunfire with the officers.

Firefighters found the other victims in two upstairs bedrooms.
