By The Associated Press
TEMPLE, Ga. (AP) -- Two children and a man are dead after what appears to be a murder-suicide in west Georgia.<br /> <br /> The Times-Georgian ( http://bit.ly/1fYTilr ) quotes Carroll County Sheriff Terry Langley as saying a man shot his two children and then killed himself.<br /> <br /> The bodies were found inside a home. Langley says it's still "pretty sketchy" what happened, however.<br /> <br /> Officers discovered the bodies Thursday after hearing concerns about the man being absent from work. Investigators believe the shooting happened either Tuesday night or Wednesday.<br /> <br /> Langley says the mother of the children had been out of the house for at least a couple weeks.<br /> <br /> Authorities haven't released the victims' names or ages.
