A MOM's boyfriend is suspected of fatally shooting her two kids and leaving a third critically injured in a domestic dispute at an apartment.
Police found the three boys, ages 5, 4 and 1, inside an Ohio apartment on Friday evening, and arrested suspect Kevin Moore, 27, at the scene.
The 5-year-old and 1-year-old died at a hospital shortly after they were found, and the 4-year-old remains in critical condition, according to the Toledo Police Department.
Moore is the boyfriend of the children's mother, police confirmed, and authorities believe he shot the children in some sort of domestic dispute.
The suspect is facing two counts of aggravated murder and one count of felonious assault.
On Facebook, the Toledo Police Department posted a statement mourning the tragic loss of the victims.
"Please pray for these victims, their families, and the first responders who were there tonight," the statement says.
"This was truly a sad day for our community."
It's unclear at this time what police believe Moore's motive was for shooting the children.
Each child was suffering from at least one gunshot wound.
Police said that the child who lived is still in the hospital "fighting for his life."
Authorities have not yet released the name of the mother or the victims.
The shooting occurred in the Byrneport Apartments, and the Toledo Police Department has asked anyone with information to contact them.
