Ottawa police are investigating an apparent murder-suicide involving a mother and her two children.

The bodies of a 10-year-old boy, a six-year-old girl and their mother were found inside a home in the suburb of Stittsville around 5:30 p.m. Monday.

The children’s father made the grisly discovery and called 911.
