ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. (AP) _ Authorities say a mother and two children were found fatally shot in a suburban northeast Florida home.

The St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office reports that deputies found the bodies Thursday afternoon after a family member contacted authorities with concerns about their welfare.

Sheriff David Shoar says it wasn’t clear why the family member was concerned.

The woman and her elementary school-age children weren’t immediately identified.

It wasn’t clear if authorities had any suspects or motive for the shooting.
