ERWIN, Tenn. (AP) - Police say an East Tennessee man killed his wife, his two children and himself.
Erwin Police Chief Reagan Tilson told WJHL-TV that officers got a call around 2 a.m. Saturday from "a wounded person" at an apartment complex in the city. Tilson said it appeared that the man fatally shot his wife and children before taking his own life.
Tilson said his agency would not release identities until all next of kin was notified, and directed further questions to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.
TBI spokeswoman Kristin Helm confirmed the information, but said the bureau wasn't immediately releasing more details.
