ELYRIA, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say it appears a woman and her three children were fatally shot by the father of the family who then turned the gun on himself at a home outside Cleveland. The Elyria Chronicle Telegram has reported that police found the bodies after the 44-year-old man’s co-worker went to the Elyria home Wednesday morning and discovered bullet casings. Neighbors reported hearing what sounded like gunshots Tuesday afternoon. Elyria police released a statement identifying the family members Thursday. The man’s wife was 35, their daughter was 10, and their sons were 12 and 6.
