A Kentucky mother has been arrested and charged with two counts of murder after shooting her two children.
Tiffanie Lucas, 32, allegedly shot her kids, ages six and nine, inside their Shepherdsville home Wednesday morning.
Bullitt County Sheriff’s Office said at 11:07 a.m. they received reports of a shooting with injury at the home.
A neighbour who felt something was wrong went into the house and found the children in a bedroom covered in blood and a gun was on the bed, reported WLKY.
When police arrived, both children were transported 30 minutes away to Norton’s Children’s Hospital in Louisville with gunshot wounds.
The kids went into surgery, and as of 2:50 p.m., police said the six and nine-year-old had died from their injuries.
Lucas was arrested and charged with two counts of murder and booked at the Bullitt County Detention Center at 3:45 p.m.
