CONOVER, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina authorities are looking for a man after a mother and three children were killed in their home.

The Catawba County Sheriff’s Office says the four bodies were found Thursday morning. A family friend had called 911 to say the woman was being attacked on her front porch near Conover, about 40 miles northwest of Charlotte.

The victims all had been either shot or stabbed to death. They included an adult daughter, a teenage daughter and a young boy.

Authorities are looking for a man who they say may know something about the slayings. They said the man is in his late 30s or early 40s, about 5-foot-10 and who was last seen wearing a blue hooded sweat shirt.

Authorities say the man is not believed to be the father of the family.
