Deputies: Fla. mom fatally shot her 4 children then herself; 3 returned to house after fleeing
PORT ST. JOHN, Fla. (AP) ' Authorities say a Florida mother shot and killed her four children before shooting herself.
Sheriff's deputies in Brevard County said 33-year-old Tanya Thomas on Tuesday shot her four children, who ranged in age from 12 to 17.
Sheriff spokesman Tod Goodyear says three of the children went to a neighbor's house early Tuesday to say their mother had shot them. The mother then called the children back to the house and killed them.
Goodyear says the neighbors called 911.
