RIVERSIDE, Ala. (AP) – Authorities say a man killed his wife and two teen girls in an Alabama home, then killed himself as police arrived.

Investigators say that officers rushed to the home in Riverside, located east of Birmingham, after getting an emergency call Sunday morning about a suicidal person.

Police say moments after officers arrived, 54-year-old William Vance shot and killed himself with a handgun. Investigators say when officers got inside the home, they found Vance’s 51-year-old wife, Florence, dead along with a 16-year-old girl and a 13-year-old girl.

The names of the girls were not released Sunday.
