(Scroll down for video) A community is left with a lot of questions after a police officer and two teenagers were found dead in Florida.

The incident began when a patrol officer approached a man and woman in their minivan.

Windermere Police Officer Robert German, 31, tried to speak with the two after he suspected that they may be the couple who were reported missing earlier in the day.

However, rather than talking to the officer, the driver sped off, almost hitting a family who walked with their baby.

The officer called for backup, but when other officers arrived they found that German was shot dead. Suddenly, officers heard more gunshots being fired.

When they went to investigate, officers found that the two teenagers committed suicide nearby in a wealthy residential suburb of Orlando.

The teens were identified as Alexandria Hollinghurst, 17 from Oldham, United Kingdom, and her U.S. boyfriend Brandon Goode, 18.

Police believe that Goode shot and killed his girlfriend before turning the gun on himself.
