PORT ST. JOHN, Fla. - Authorities say a Florida mother shot and killed her four children before shooting herself.

Sheriff's deputies in Brevard County said 33-year-old Tonya Thomas on Tuesday shot her four children, who ranged in age from 12 to 17.

Sheriff spokesman Tod Goodyear says three of the children went to a neighbor's house early Tuesday to say their mother had shot them. The mother then called the children back to the house and killed them.

Goodyear says the neighbors called 911.
