FLORISSANT, Mo. (AP) — A man and woman were killed and a 5-year-old boy critically injured in what investigators believe was a murder-suicide shooting in a home outside a St. Louis suburb, police said.

St. Louis County police were called to the home outside Florissant around 11:30 p.m. Monday for a burglar alarm, officials said. Arriving officers found the man and woman with gunshot wounds. Both were pronounced dead at the scene.

Police also found the child with a gunshot wound. The boy was rushed to a hospital in critical condition. The boy was later in stable condition at the hospital, police said.

Investigators say it appeared the man shot the woman and the child, then turned the gun on himself.

Police have not released the names of those involved and have not detailed how or whether the man was related to the other victims.
