Police are investigating a shooting in Denver that left three people dead and another injured.

Denver Police said that that one woman and two children under the age of 10 were found dead at the 4900 block of Pearl Street, according to KCNC. Police described the incident as an apparent murder-suicide involving the mother of the children. There was no indication of additional shooters.

A third child had been taken to the hospital and was in surgery by 8:55 a.m local time.

“It appears to be an isolated incident. We are talking to people, we are talking to witnesses but we have no indication that there is a shooter out there on the loose in Denver,” Denver Police Lt. Matt Murray told reporters. “All of the children appear to be under the age of 10. However because we have not been able to verify identity I can’t tell you exactly how old each child was… They are young children.”
