Two children, one adult dead in possible murder-suicide in Oregon

Authorities say two children and a man were killed in a shooting at an apartment complex in Oregon.

Beaverton police spokesman Mike Rowe said in a news release that officers responded to the apartment Wednesday afternoon after a female relative called saying three people were possibly dead inside.

Police arrived and confirmed that an 8-year-old girl, 6-year-old boy and a man were dead in the apartment. A major crime team was investigating the incident as a homicide-suicide and they don't believe there is a risk to the public.

No other information was immediately available.

Beaverton is about 8 miles west of Portland.
