By Meg Wagner:Home invaders shot and killed two children after breaking into an Atlanta-area home, police said.
An 11-year-old girl and her 15-year-old brother were found dead inside their Clayton County home early Saturday, WSB-TV reported.
Several other children, one as young as 6, who were inside the house at the time were not injured.
Two families live in the house, officials said. No adults were home at the time and police said none of the parents are considered suspects.
Someone inside the house — possibly one of the uninjured kids — called 911 after the 5 a.m. break-in.
Police have not named any possible suspects. Investigators are interviewing the surviving children for any descriptions of the burglars.
“It’s very tragic. It’s senseless,” Clayton County police Chief Michael Register told the local TV station.
