TAMARAC, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a South Florida man fatally shot his wife and mother-in-law before killing himself while his three young children were in the house.

The Broward County Sheriff’s Office received a call about a shooting early Saturday.

Once deputies arrived at the home in Tamarac, they were able to help the children, ages 4, 8 and 11, out of the house through a bedroom window.

The sheriff's office says in a news release that a SWAT team entering the house found Clody Sylverne and a woman dead.

Another woman with severe injuries was also found at the house but she was pronounced dead at a hospital.
