Police spokesman John Elder said an "adult male" ran into a house where more gunfire was heard by the responding officers. The officers attempted life saving measures, but the children died. Elder said he did not know the ages of the children but "they're young, we're not talking teenagers." The shooting appears to be a domestic situation.
