A neighbor who lives just steps from the Port Angeles home where three people were shot and killed said he never suspected anything was amiss at the property.
“No, nothing out of the ordinary at all,” said Steve Lovik, who moved to the community along Deer Park Road five years ago.
“It just seems unreal to me,” he said, looking out over the yellow crime scene tape.
Darrell Iverson, 57, who was killed in the shooting, was one of the first people Lovik met when he moved to the rural area in the foothills of the Olympics five years ago.
“As soon as we moved in he came over and offered any information, ‘Need help with anything? Let me know, and I'll be more than willing to come over and help,’ so he was really good about that,” Lovik said.
The other victims were Iverson's son, Jordan Iverson, 27, and Tiffany May, 26.
Sara Coventon, a close family friend, said Jordan Iverson overcame opiate addiction and was very close with his father, who owned a log truck business.
“(Jordan) was an extremely talented mechanic, he could fix anything. He learned that from (his) dad,” Coventon wrote in a Facebook message.
She said Darrell Iverson was “a very proud, stubborn man, he worked hard to earn everything he had in life.”
Coventon said May was “like a bundle of sunshine, she always had the biggest smile on her face.”
