Investigators with the Attorney General's office say three people killed in Bedford over the weekend were likely victims of a murder-suicide. 

Assistant Attorney General Jay McCormack says police responded to a 911 call from Alexey Obukhov.  He reported the death of 34  year old  Nina Obukhov.

Bedford Police later discovered two other victims: the Obukhovs' children Katherine and Elizabeth, ages 8 and 6.

The cause of death for all three was a gunshot wound to the head. McCormack says while investigation is ongoing, " based on information to date, investigators believe this was a murder suicide where the mother shot her children and then shot herself." 

Bedford police and investigators with the Attorney General’s office said late Sunday they are not searching for anyone in connection with the case.

In an email to parents of the Bedford School District on Sunday, Superintendent Chip McGee wrote that the elementary school will have counselors available Monday morning.
