CINCINNATI (AP) - Police say an Ohio woman and her two sons have died from apparent gunshot wounds in what police suspect is a murder-suicide.

Springfield Police Chief Stephen Moody says the preliminary investigation indicates the woman shot her sons and took her own life. He says the woman, 32-year-old Rachel Johnson, and her 7-year-old son, Daylan, were found dead at their home. Her 10-year-old son, Ayden Johnson, died at a hospital.

Moody says the children's father, 39-year-old Arthur Johnson, called police after finding the mother and children when he went to pick up his sons for school.

The Springfield City School District says grief counselors are at the boys' school.
