Authorities say a 44-year-old man fatally shot his wife, her sister and himself, leaving four frightened children to run past their bodies as they fled the Florida house.
The incident happened Sunday morning, according to the Delray Beach Police Department.
Officials said 44-year-old Julien Techeler Rosemberg shot the two women inside with a semi-automatic handgun. He then allegedly walked to the back yard and used the same weapon on himself.
None of the four children, who range in age from 5 to 14, were injured.
Officials said their mother, 43-year-old Pierrena Rosemberg, and her sister, 41-year-old Lourdine Cazeau, 41, were both shot multiple times.
Florida's Department of Children and Families was notified and the children are currently with relatives.
