Investigators with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said a 32-year-old man shot a 32-year-old woman and the children, then turned the gun on himself.

The shooting happened near Olympic Boulevard and Hicks Avenue.

The children, a boy and girl, were rushed to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center. They died at the hospital from their wounds.

It is unclear what the relationship is between the suspect and the victims.
