Sunday, 14 Jan, 2018

Almost an hour later, officers discovered the kids' mother near a highway bridge where she had jumped to her death.

Officers with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department responded on Saturday night to a home on Sebastiani Drive around 6 p.m.

Officials say the mother killed her 3-year-old-daughter and 7-year-old son, then killed herself by jumping off of I-485.

The children were both transported to Carolinas Medical Center where they were pronounced dead by hospital staff.

A mother killed her two children, then herself in a double murder-suicide Saturday in northwest Charlotte, police say.

Police are requesting the public's help in identifying a man they said is responsible for an armed robbery at a Dollar General store in Charlotte.

At this time, we do not know how the children died.

Police say the investigation is ongoing.

Two weeks into the new year, this marks the city's second and third homicide.
