ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - The Orange County Sheriff’s Office says an 11-year-old called for help after two people were shot dead in an apparent murder-suicide in Florida.

According to Orange County Capt. Angelo Nieves, the incident happened Sunday morning in the eastern part of the county.

Nieves said the oldest child in the home was 11 and dialed for help. There were multiple children in the home and none were injured.

He added that that he wasn’t sure how many children were inside when the tragedy happened. It was unclear what sparked the shooting.

The children were placed in the care of a relative and deputies are investigating.
