Mother, two sons found dead

COLORADO SPRINGS ” A mother and her two young sons were shot to death in their home, police said Monday.

Police did not release any names or details of the shootings. The mother and an 11-year-old were found dead in the house and a 13-year-old died at a hospital Sunday night, Lt. Rafael Cintron said.

The El Paso County coroner’s office did not immediately return a telephone message on Monday.

Officers were called to the home Sunday morning.

Neighbors said the woman’s husband had been laid off from his job in Colorado and was working in South Carolina. He was not in the home at the time of the shootings, they said.

Family friend John Langley said his wife, Tricia, found the bodies and the surviving boy when she went to the home Sunday morning to pick up the woman for a trip to La Junta.
