MIAMI — Authorities say a Florida woman fatally shot her two children and then herself.

The Miami Herald reports that the dead woman and children were discovered Friday.

Miami-Dade police spokesman Argemis Colome says the woman’s ex-husband discovered the bodies of the 29-year-old woman, their 1-year-old son and their 8-year-old daughter when the man went to a southern Miami-Dade County home shortly after noon.

Police weren’t immediately identifying any of the family members.
