PAOLI, Ind. -- An Indiana man shot his two children and stabbed his wife just  before killing himself Tuesday night, according FOX 59.

Melissa Randolf, 33, and husband, Jeremy Gehl, 37, got into an argument that turned physical inside the couple's home just before 5 p.m.

FOX 59 reports that investigators said Gehl allegedly attacked Randolf with a knife and stabbed her multiple times.

When the couple's two children came downstairs after hearing the struggle, Gehl shot his 6-year-old son and 3-year-old daughter before shooting and killing himself, according to FOX 59. The third child inside of the home was not injured.

Both children were airlifted to a hospital in Kentucky. The 3-year-old girl was pronounced dead due to the injuries she suffered from being shot. The 6-year-old boy was listed in critical condition, according to the report.

Randolf was airlifted to a hospital but later transferred to be closer to her children.
