LILLINGTON, N.C. — Deputies say a preliminary autopsy report shows that a North Carolina shot and killed her two children before turning the gun on herself, according to WTVD.

Deputies responded to a home on Cherry Hill Drive in Lillington in reference to a “wellbeing check” check around 4 p.m. on Friday.

Authorities say they believe the mother, Danielle Biggs, shot her 3-year-old son and 21-month-old daughter before fatally shooting herself.

The children were identified as Gwendolyn and Benjamin Biggs.

According to WTVD, deputies said Danielle’s husband is on active duty with the military and was not in the country at the time of the murder-suicide.
