TAMARAC, Fla. — A South Florida man fatally shot his wife and mother-in-law before killing himself while his three young children were in the house, according to authorities.

The Broward Sheriff's Office received a call about a shooting early Saturday. Once deputies arrived at the home in Tamarac, they were able to help the children, ages 4, 8 and 11, out of the house through a bedroom window, according to a sheriff's office news release.

A SWAT team entering the house found Clody Sylverne and a woman dead. Another woman with severe injuries was also found at the house but she was pronounced dead at a hospital, the sheriff's office said.

The Broward Sheriff's Office wasn't releasing immediately the names of the two women.
