3 out of 4 children found dead after shooting in western Michigan


According to authorities, three children and one woman were found dead from gunshot wounds in a home in western Michigan.

Michelle LaJoye-Young, Kent County Sheriff, said the authorities reacted Monday at a property near Cedar Springs, a community about 48 km north of Grand Rapids. She says someone discovered the bodies and called 911.

LaJoye-Young said the three children were old enough to go to elementary school and were younger, but declined to provide additional information about the relationships between the victims. She added that the authorities still confirmed the identity of the victims.

LaJoye-Young called the scene "a horrible thing to be called for" and said "my heart goes to the families involved here and to the community".

Authorities do not believe that there is a fleeing gunman. An investigation is underway.
