Md. man, woman and child dead in murder-suicide

OWINGS — Calvert County officials say a man, woman and a 2-year-old child are dead following an apparent murder-suicide.

The sheriff’s office says the bodies were found Tuesday morning inside a home in Owings.

Authorities believe a 32-year-old man shot his wife and child before killing himself. Another 12-year-old child believed to be a member of the family is being treated for burns and lacerations to the neck.

Lt. Steven Jones of the county sheriff’s office says authorities are investigating and more information is expected to be released later Tuesday.
