SOLON TOWNSHIP, Mich — The autopsies have been completed after the Kent County Sheriff's Office said a 28-year-old mother killed her three daughters and herself.

According to WZZM, deputies said the evidence shows that Aubrianne Moore shot and killed her three daughters.

Deputies went to a home on 19 Mile Road in Solon Township on Monday and found the four dead. The mother used a bolt action hunting-style rifle to carry out the murder-suicide, according to a press release.

After shooting the girls, authorities say Moore loaded her children into her vehicle and drove them home before turning the gun on herself outside of the vehicle.

The three daughters are identified as Alaina Rau, 2; Cassidy Rodery, 6; and Kyrie Rodery, 8.

A press conference with updates on the case will be held Wednesday by the Kent County Sheriff's Department.
