Police: Adult and 7 children found dead in Maryland home
PRINCESS ANNE, Md. (AP) — Police say seven children and one adult, all related, have been found dead in a Maryland home.
Officers from the Princess Anne Police Department say no foul play is suspected. They were sent to the home Monday after being contacted by a concerned co-worker of the adult.
A news release from the department says the juveniles ranged in age from 6 to 16. Police did not give an age for the adult or say how the deceased were all related.
News photos from the scene showed a small, single-story home with yellow siding and brown shutters, marked off with yellow police tape. A small crowd gathered in front of the home, near a police SUV.
Princess Anne is the county seat of Somerset County on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.
