A mother allegedly killed her three children before killing herself in a North Dakota home Thursday, according to the Grand Forks Police Department.

Astra Volk, 35, allegedly used a handgun to kill her three children, Tyler Talmage, 14, Aidan Talmage, 10, and Arianna Talmage, 6. When the Grand Forks police arrived to the home they found Volk and her children all dead from gunshot wounds, Fox News reported.

Police were notified when administrators at Lewis and Clark Elementary School asked police to check on the family Thursday afternoon, when the children did not show up to school.

“You have a horrific scene that encapsulates a great tragedy and I think we’re all going to be affected by that,” said Lt. Derik Zimmel of the Grand Forks Police Department.

Police said there are no suspects to the crime.
