FORT WALTON BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a man killed his wife and two of his children before killing himself at their Florida Panhandle home.

The Northwest Florida Daily News (https://goo.gl/mMeD8J) reports that Fort Walton Beach police officers discovered the bodies Tuesday morning following a reported domestic disturbance.

A police news release says 43-year-old Catrina Butler died from multiple stab wounds, while 20-year-old Jeremy Butler and 14-year-old Katelyn Butler were shot to death. The release says William Butler died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

A neighbor told the newspaper that that a fifth family member, a boy, fled from the home to another residence, where that neighbor called 911.
