TWO children and two adults were found dead from gunshots in Ohio in what police suspect was a murder-suicide.
Avon Lake Patrol Officers made the discovery on Tuesday afternoon when they were sent to the English Turn home for a welfare check.
They requested backup at the scene when they noticed a "suspicious condition" inside the home, as reported by Cleveland19.
Once inside they found the victims dead from gunshots.
The Avon Lake City School District confirmed the two children were students at a local Elementary school.
"This afternoon, we learned the tragic news that we lost one of our Avon Lake families, including two students at Erieview Elementary School. We have arranged to have grief counselors at Erieview tomorrow morning to work with staff and students," the district said in a statement to the community.
"It is important that we recognize this loss and offer help. This is a sensitive issue for children, and we suggest that you talk with your children about their feelings," they added.
The Lorain County Coroner has said the case is being investigated as a murder-suicide.
Police have not yet revealed any of the names involved.
Local news outlets reported that neighbors watched in shock as police conducted the investigation inside the home.
"We’ve lived here three years and have never seen anything like it,” neighbor Chad Broski told Cleveland19. “I don’t know the people that live in that house but it’s definitely a friendly neighborhood for sure.”
