In Kentucky, a woman faces two counts of murder for allegedly shooting her two children, aged 6 and 9, to death in their home on Wednesday.
Deputies answering a shooting report at Tiffanie Lucas’ residence in Shepherdsville around 11 a.m., discovered her children with gunshot wounds, as confirmed by the Bullitt County Sheriff’s Office in a statement.
The brothers were quickly taken to a hospital in Louisville, where they died later, as per the police.
Lucas, 32, was taken to the Bullitt County jail and charged with two counts of murder.
As per an arrest report cited by WLKY, a neighbor who “felt something was off” discovered the children covered in blood in a bedroom alongside a gun resting on the bed.
Another neighbor told the news outlet she was shocked by the news after having seen the kids just days before at the bus stop.
“It makes me sick, just thinking of any kid getting hurt or possibly losing their life. It’s just devastating,” she told WLKY.
There were no additional details released about the case.
