Justin Rossilini, a neighbor who lives across the street from the two-story home, told the Orlando Sentinel the family included an adult son and two little girls around the ages of 6 and 7.

"I’ve had the past two days off. We’ve been home. I didn’t hear anything," he told the local newspaper, noting that the family had just moved in a couple of months ago.
