Police hunting murder suspect who 'may still be armed' after three women killed inside house

Police hunting murder suspect who 'may still be armed' after three women killed inside house

The 26-year-old is suspecting of murdering the women in Hertfordshire last night

Police are hunting a murder suspect who 'may still be armed'.

Kyle Clifford, from Enfield, London is wanted over the deaths of three women who were found fatally injured in a house in Bushey, Hertfordshire, just after 7pm last night (9 July).

Hertfordshire Police have warned he may still be in possession of a crossbow and members of the public should dial 999 if they see him. It's thought the 26-year-old could be in Hertfordshire or north London.

Officers and emergency medical crews, including two air ambulances, were sent to the scene in attempt to save the women, who were related. However, they all died at the scene.

Local councillors for the North Bushey area said they were 'deeply shocked and saddened' by the news of the deaths.

A neighbour, who did not want to be named, said she didn't know them well but described them as a friendly family.

“We would see them every day passing by and they would say good morning,” she said. “It’s really sad what’s happened, very shocking.”

Detective Superintendent Rob Hall from Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire's Major Crime Unit has asked for anyone with information to come forward.

“Whilst we are still in the early stages of this investigation, we are actively seeking Kyle Clifford who we believe could be in the areas of Hertfordshire or north London,” he said.

“Given the serious nature of the incident, I would ask anyone who knows where he is to contact police immediately. If you believe you see him, please do not approach him and dial 999 straight away. He may still be in possession of a weapon.
