A hostage situation at a Narcotics Anonymous meeting in Florida ended Monday night with three dead, police said.

Police responded to a report that a person was shot at Bridge the Gap, a nonprofit, on Monday at about 7 p.m. in Edgewater, about 100 miles northeast of Orlando. Bridge the Gap was hosting a Narcotics Anonymous meeting at the time.

Suspect Quinton Hunter entered the building after the meeting began and shot Ian Greenfield at close range, “fatally wounding him,” Edgewater police said.

“At this point, we believe Quinton Hunter was upset about a relationship Greenfield had with Hunter’s ex-girlfriend, Erica Hoffman, the second victim in this case,” police said in a statement shared with NBC News.

The 20 in attendance at the NA meeting were able to flee the building, but Hunter prevented Hoffman from leaving, turning the incident into a hostage situation, police said.

The Southeast Volusia Regional SWAT Team and the Southeast Volusia Negotiation Team arrived on the scene and attempted to contact Hunter to negotiate a resolution.

“There was no response from within,” the police said.

Upon entering the building, SWAT discovered the bodies of Greenfield, Hoffman, and Hunter. Authorities say no one else was inside.

Both Greenfield and Hoffman “appeared to have suffered gunshot wounds and lacerations,” while Hunter “had died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.”

The Edgewater Police Department is continuing the investigation in conjunction with the Public Prosecution Service.
