A mother and her three kids are dead on Friday with a wounded man found at the scene reportedly the main suspect in the case over in Michigan.

According to Mecosta County Sheriff Brian Miller, they responded to a shooting incident and found the three minors and a woman dead, MLive.com reported.

The man, allegedly the husband and father, was also found at the scene with a gun and a wound to the head. Miller said in the report that the man was reportedly responsible for the shooting but did not get into detail on Saturday, May 28.

The mom and her kids reportedly died from gunshot wounds while the injured man was brought to a hospital for treatment.

“We have a very tight-knit community in Mecosta,” Miller said. “There’s no better place I’d rather raise my kids at.”

“With our first-responders, almost everyone at the scene had children of their own. I can tell you they took it very hard,” Miller added.

In a separate report from ABC 13, Hailey Salisbury claimed that the woman who was killed was her mother and identified as Dawn Gillard. She also revealed the three kids killed as Katelyn Gillard (6-years-old), Ronald Gillard (4-years-old) and Joshua Gillard (3 years old).

“I am in total shock. I am so devastated,” Salisbury quipped.

She also identified the suspect as Charles Gillard. However, authorities have yet to officially reveal the names of the deceased and the detained suspect.

Further, it was added by Morley Stanwood Community Schools Superintendent Roger Cole that one of the victims went to the district’s elementary school.

“How it happened, why it happened, is not the focus on this letter,” he wrote. “The loss of a life is always difficult, but when that loss is tragic, and yes senseless, it is much harder to deal with.”
