MASTIC BEACH, N.Y. (AP) - Police say a man fatally shot his wife and himself at their Long Island home while four of their children were at school.

They say two other children under the age of two were inside the Mastic Beach home Thursday but were not harmed.

Police identified the couple as 29-year-old Wayne Street and 28-year-old Jenni Lee Street.

The two were found dead after the children had arrived home from school to find themselves locked out.

The kids sought help from a customer at a nearby shop who called 911 after peering inside the home and seeing the bodies.

The couple had lived in the neighborhood for just a few months. Police say they had never been called to the house for any domestic disputes.

The children are in protective custody.
