AUBURN, Wash. (AP) — Auburn police say a shooting that left three family members dead appears to be homicide-suicide, though police are still investigating. Officers received reports of gunshots coming from a home just before 7 p.m. Tuesday. A police spokesman says officers found a man, woman and a 10-year-old child dead at the home. Another child, who was 12, was able to escape the home during the shooting without physical injuries. The child went to a neighbor who called 911. Police say the child is safely housed and in contact with Child Protective Services.
