Police in an Atlanta suburb responding to reports of a stabbing say they've found four young children and a man all dead inside a home.
Gwinnett County police said in a brief statement that the bodies were found early Thursday morning in Loganville.
Police described the crime as horrendous, and said a motive wasn't immediately known. Police said they detained a woman, though no charges were immediately announced.
The children's ages weren't immediately available.
Video from WSB-TV showed crime scene tape surrounding a single-story home with white paneling in a subdivision.
Police detained the mother of the children.
