Two adults were gunned down in a house where five children were present during an apparent home invasion near Tampa, police said.
According to a report from NBC affiliate WFLA, the two adults are believed to the parents of the five children, who range in age from infancy to 11-years-old.
Brandenton Police tell WFLA they found the glass of the front door of the home shattered. Police say four or five masked people entered the home, but are unsure what transpired, and how much the children witnessed.
Reports did not indicate whether anything was taken from the home.
The children are reported to be safe and in the custody of Child Protective Services.
No further information was immediately available.
