Mother, 2 children found shot to death in Lynnview

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- There is a chilling atmosphere in Lynnview. Police tell us two young boys, ages 8 and 10, were shot to death inside their home on Bluebird Ave.

Their mother was also found dead inside the home, and the police are not looking for any suspects. 

The shootings were reported around 8:30 p.m. on August 25.

According to neighbors, they believe a family member showed up at the house and found the horrible scene.

“This is a very real tragedy. I can't imagine a soul to be that tortured that they might possibly take the life of their own children. It's very apparent that this is a close-knit neighborhood. You see clusters of people around. So this is something that's having a very far reaching affect, not just on the extended family but on the neighbors who live here as well,” said LMPD spokesperson Alicia Smiley.

Neighbors at the scene said they will be holding on tight to their children.
