SOLON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WWJ/AP) - Authorities say three children and a woman were found dead of apparent gunshot wounds at a home in western Michigan.
Kent County Sheriff Michelle LaJoye-Young says authorities responded Monday to a property near Cedar Springs, a community about 30 miles north of Grand Rapids. She says someone discovered the bodies and called 911.
LaJoye-Young said the three children were elementary school-aged and younger but declined to provide further information about the victims' relationships to one another. A report by WOOD-TV identified the victims as 28-year-old Aubrianne Moore and sisters Alaina, 2; Cassidy, 6; and Kyrie, 8. Family members say Moore was the girls' mother.
LaJoye-Young called the scene "a horrific thing to be called to" and said "my heart goes out to the families involved here and the community."
Authorities don't believe there is a shooter at large. Police are investigating the shooting as a possible murder-suicide. Neighbors are being asked to provide any home surveillance footage they may have of the hours leading up to the shooting.
An investigation is ongoing.
