RIVERSIDE, Ala. (AP) — A man killed his wife and their two teen girls in an St. Clair County home, then killed himself as police arrived, authorities said.

Officers were coming to the home in Riverside after getting an emergency call Sunday morning about a suicidal person, investigators told media outlets.

Moments after officers arrived, William Huntoon Vance, 54, shot and killed himself with a handgun, police said.
Inside the home, authorities found Vance’s 51-year-old wife, Florence, dead along with a 16-year-old girl and a 13-year-old girl, police said.

Officials later confirmed to WBRC Fox 6 Birmingham that the girls were the couple’s daughters.
