Alaska authorities are investigating the deaths of four children, one of whom is believed to have killed the others and himself, according to state troopers.
Alaska State Troopers were alerted to a report of a shooting north of Fairbanks, Alaska, at 4:17 p.m. on Tuesday, where the troopers found four children dead from apparent gunshot wounds in a building, according to troopers. The troopers believe a 15-year-old boy among the victims used a gun to shoot three of his siblings, ages 5, 8, and 17, before turning the gun on himself, according to NBC News.
The gun recovered by authorities was a “family gun but beyond that, it’s all still part of the ongoing investigation,” said Tim DeSpain, a spokesman for the Alaska State Troopers.
The parents of the victims were not home when the incident occurred, and three other siblings in the home, all under the age of 7, were not injured, according to troopers. (Read more from “Four Fairbanks Children Dead After Teenager Opens Fire on Siblings: Authorities” HERE)
