A 32-year-old Kentucky woman has been charged after she shot her young children to death in their home, according to police.
Tiffanie Lucas, 32, was booked into the Bullitt County Detention Center and charged with murder after her children, ages 6 and 9, were found with gunshot wounds in the family home, local station WLKY reported .
Citing police documents, the station reported that a neighbor was the person who found the blood-soaked children in a bedroom, with a gun near the bodies.
The two children were transported to a local hospital, but died of their injuries a short time later, according to the WLKY.
Lucas was arrested shortly thereafter.
No other details about the case were immediately known.
Another neighbor told the station she was shocked by the news, and she had seen the children just days before at the bus stop.
“It makes me sick, just thinking of any kid getting hurt or possibly losing their life — it’s just devastating,” Amanda Magnis told WLKY.
