Justin Rossilini, a neighbor who lives across the street from the two-story house, told the Orlando Sentinel that the family was an adult son and two little girls, about 6 and 7 years old.

“I’ve had the last two days off. We’ve been home. I haven’t heard anything,” he told the local newspaper, noting that the family had just moved in a few months ago.
