TAMPA, Fla. — Two children were home at a Tampa apartment when their father shot their mother and then himself.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office reports that deputies responded to the home Thursday morning and found the man dead from a what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The wife was taken to a hospital, where she later died.

The girls, ages 10 and 14, reportedly hid in the bathroom during the shooting and ran for help when it was over. They have been placed in state custody.

A manager at the apartment complex said the family had lived there for more than three years. He said the couple were friendly and involved in the community.
